SPECIAL REPORT


Machen nets



highest pay

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

There's a powerful man roaming campus.
He's given thousands of dollars each year for
the upkeep of his Audi. He makes more money
than the governor.
The Chronicle of Higher Education recently
released the salaries of every university presi-
dent in the nation.
Guess who tops the list in Florida.
UF President Bernie Machen's base salary is
$411,037, according to the Chronicle's report.
On top of that, he gets a $7,888 allowance for
his car, $22,924 for retirement pay, a $75,000 an-
nual bonus and a $210,000 retention bonus.
All together, he gets $726,849.
That's about $25,000 more than Florida State
University President T.K. Wetherell and $593,917
more than Gov. Charlie Crist, who makes
$132,932 a year.
"It's a lot of money, you know?" Machen
said after a meeting of UF's Faculty Senate
on Thursday afternoon. "I feel, in some ways,
lucky."
"It's a lot of money, you know? I feel, in
some ways, lucky."
Bernie Machen
UF president

Machen flipped through the Chronicle's re-
port, grinning and pointing when he found the
page listing him as the sixth-highest-paid leader
of public universities nationwide.
David P. Roselle, president of the University
of Delaware makes the most $874,687 a year.
"Are university presidents worth that kind of
money?" Machen asked with a laugh.
As for how it feels to make more than the gov-
ernor, Machen just smiled.
"You're going to have to ask him how he
feels," he said.
Each year, Machen gets a raise of about 2 to
3 percent, the same raise the rest of UF's faculty
and administrators receive, said Dianna Morgan,
chairwoman of UF's Board of Trustees.
The board serves as the university's highest
governing body.

UF bucks trend in law-school apps


Levin is seeing more interest


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

While law schools nationwide are expe-
riencing a decline in applications this year,
the number of applications to UF's College
of Law is on the rise.
In an annual Kaplan Test Prep and
Admissions nationwide survey of 190 law
school admissions officers, half reported
a decline in applications in the past two
years.
Robert Jerry, dean of UF's Levin College
of Law, said UF has not been affected by
this trend in the last two years.
He said in 2006, the number of applica-
tions rose 10 percent, about 3,000 applica-
tions.
"It's fair to say that our law school is
increasingly a popular first-choice destina-
tion," Jerry said.
Jerry said he expects the number of


applications to UF law school to continue
to rise.
"People who take a dose look at the
university and especially those taking a
look at the law school realize we've got
some pretty good things going on here,"
he said.
Glen Stohr, assistant director of pre-law
programs for Kaplan, said at a school like
UF there would always
UF be fierce competition
Academics regardless of national
numbers.
Stohr said 79 percent of the admissions
officers surveyed said the nationwide
decline in applications hasn't made the ad-
missions process less competitive, adding
the trend implies the quality of applicants
is getting stronger.
"While it's a good time to apply with a
smaller cohort, you've really got to make
sure the application is top-notch," Stohr
said.


He said the decline wouldn't continue
for long and is part of a cycle. In the past
10 or 15 years, there has been a steady in-
crease in applications.
It's still enough of a decline for law
school hopefuls to take advantage of, he
said.
"What that means for students is that
this is a really, really good time to apply,"
Stohr said.
Wendy Margolis, Law School
Admission Council director of commu-
nications, said she doesn't think it's a sig-
nificant decline. Margolis said the number
of applicants has declined, but the Law
School Admission Council has increased
registrations for the law school admission
test, known as the LSAT.
Stohr said those applying to law school
should also be aware of changes that were
made to the LSAT in June, but not to be
afraid.
- "Students shouldn't fear it, but respect
that it's there and be sure to prepare in a
way that you will be ready for it," Stohr
said.

E-cards spread holiday cheer at UF


Meyer registers


voters on campus

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
llewis@alligator.org

Bobbing his head to Led Zeppelin tunes, Andrew Meyer
wasn't attracting too much attention Thuisday afternoon.
As he manned a table on the Reitz Union Colonnade, Meyer
blared music from a portable stereo and kept dose watch over
a stack of voter-registration forms. Meanwhile, dozens of stu-
dents shuffled by without even giving him a second glance.
Call this the new normal for Meyer, the UF telecommunica-
tion senior famous for being Tasered. After spending about two
months at the center of a media maelstrom, Meyer says he's
trying to downplay his status and promote more important is-
sues namely, voter registration and Ron Paul.
To achieve his goals, he's launched a mini voter-registration
drive on UF's campus.
Meyer has spent five days signing up new voters without
the aid of Chomp the Vote, Student Government's registration
drive. (The group did give him some free pens, though.)
Eyeing passers-by from his registration station
On on the colonnade, Meyer said he helped about
Campus 100 people sign up to vote during the first three
days of his effort.
But he stressed that he's not trying to extend
his 15 minutes of fame. Instead, he said, he and a friend were
looking for ways to effect change.
"The apathy needs to stop," Meyer said.
So, armed with blank registration forms, he's planted him-
self on the colonnade to chat up voter issues to just about any-
one who approaches him.
He's also been promoting Paul, his presidential candidate
of choice. .
Mainstream media outlets have ignored the GOP Texas
congressman's message for too long, Meyer said.
"They don't want to put him on the cover of The New York
Times," he said.
So this is a day in the new life of Meyer: chitchatting with
students about political activism as he plays Zeppelin and Rage
Against the Machine on his portable stereo.
Of course, fame doesn't always fade quickly. Although
many passers-by steered clear of the registration table, Meyer
admitted he'd been recognized "a couple times."

Although UF's cuddly-as-a-cactus, charming-as-an-
eel budget woes threaten to rob students of teachers and
advisers, UF administrators just aren't ready to give up
seasonal cheer.
This year, UF's holiday cards are coming without
ribbons. They're coming without tags. They're coming
without packages, boxes or bags.
Instead, UF President Bernie Machen has encour-
aged UF's faculty members to switch to electronic greet-
ing cards to save trees and money, he wrote in a memo to
UF's deans, directors and department chairs.
Each year, 2.65 billion holiday cards are sold nation-
wide, Machen wrote in the memo.
"That's enough to fill Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and
Florida Field to the brim!" he wrote.
After a meeting of UF's Faculty Senate on Thursday
afternoon, Machen said he didn't know how many
cards his office sends out every year.
"E-mail is not the same as a personal
card."
Bernie Machen
UF president


By motioning with his hand, he estimated the stack
towers up to his shoulder.
Machen's office sends cards to financial donors, leg-
islators and all the other state universities.
"Why do we do it? Because of tradition," he said. "I
inherited a Christmas list."
When UF's Office of Sustainability brought up the
idea of e-mailed greeting cards, Machen said he was
skeptical whether it would be well-received.
When he asked around, he said no one objected.
He said his main concern was that the e-mailed cards
would seem unfriendly.
"E-mail is not the same as a personal card," he said.
"It's not even the same as a letter."
In his memo, Machen included an example of one of
the brightly colored, nondenominational cards available
on UF's Web site.
"Of course, you can create your own design, if you
prefer," he wrote.

On Thursday, Machen chuckled at the thought of
choosing the card he'll send out.
"My wife picks them," he said, adding that she usu-
ally picks two or three cards of the 13 offered, and they


decide on one together.
Chris Brazda, spokesman for the UF Foundation,
which handles donations to UF, said most colleges at UF
send out their own holiday cards to thank donors.
UF's Alumni Association also sends holiday cards to
the association's 50,000 members each year, Brazda said.
This year, the association will only send out electronic
cards to the 30,000 members with available e-mail ad-
dresses, he said.
He said he didn't know how much money the as-
sociation would save, but between printing and postal
costs, it's a "considerable amount."
The 20,000 members without e-mail addresses won't
get anything in their virtual stockings.
Still, the budget hasn't stolen Christmas, Hanukkah,
Kwanzaa or any other holiday, for that matter. And
Machen, with his jolly laugh and snow-white hair, is
making sure of it.


UF is providing e-cards, such as the one above, for
administrators and faculty to send out.

Temperatures may fall below freezingthis weekend


N IT MAY BE 31 DEGREES TONIGHT.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Temperatures are expected to fall to or
below freezing late tonight into early Saturday
morning.


PhilPeterson, a forecaster at theJacksonville
National Weather Service Forecast Office, said
the office is projecting the temperature to be 31
degrees late tonight to early Saturday.
That is one degree below freezing, and a
freeze watch is in effect for the Gainesville
area, Peterson said.
Danny Hinson, Alachua County
Emergency Management planner, said


Gainesville is in the southern area of the freeze
watch.
It's mainly for southern Georgia and the
northeast inland part of Florida,
Local Hinson said.
News People should cover up any
fragile plants that cannot take a
light freeze, such as tropical plants, Peterson
said.


They should also make sure their heaters
are working correctly, he said.
Hinson said to make sure the elderly are
protected from colder weather.
If people live in mobile homes or older
homes that might have exposed pipes, they
need to make sure water runs through the
entire system so the pipes don't freeze, Hinson
said.


AROUND UF

Radio service cuts programs, upsetting some listeners


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

Carol Massey wakes up every
Thursday and waits to hear the
grocery ads read over the radio.
The Gainesville resident, who is
blind, depends on the program to
know where she can go to save
money.
She's used the Radio Reading-
Service, which has been provided
by UF's Classic 89, since its incep-
tion in 1992.
She has relied on the service for
activities such as listening to a pro-
gram called "Window Shopping,"
which reads ads from various
stores in town. /
The reading service still reads
the grocery ads, usually twice on
Thursday, but Massey said it re-
ally "screws up her week" if they
aren't read, which happened a few
weeks ago.
"This is a really valuable service
for me," said Massey. "I'm blind,
so I can't get in the car and go look
myself."
Massey and several others
said they have noticed a decline
in services provided by the Radio
Reading Service, which has a lis-
tening audience of 650, she said.
Listeners are sent special receiv-
ers that pick up the low-frequency

signal the service is broadcast over.
As part of the service, volunteers
read newspapers, grocery ads,
magazines and books to the listen-
ers.
Massey said many" programs,
such as "Window Shopping," have
been canceled. Weekend service
has also been canceled.
"I would like to see more local
service," Massey said. "I would
like to see' some of those old pro-
grams back on the air."
However, Jean DeFlumer,
station manager, said "Window
Shopping" and weekend service
were cut because there weren't
enough volunteers.
DeFlumer also said the station
likes to use the Minnesota reading
service when it finishes with local
programming.
Massey said the service is rely-
ing too much on broadcasts from a
Minnesota reading service, instead
of having local programming.
One of the most recent issues
bothering listeners is the cancella-
tion of "Focus," a local program.
"Focus" brought on health
professionals, doctors, nurses
and people from agencies like the
Veteran's Affairs and Hospice.
The program, a live broadcast,
was ended last month because
the host, Jo DeNicola, didn't want
to record her show a week in ad-


vance.
DeNicola said it helped people
respond to problems in their lives
in a positive manner. She brought
in guests who helped the listeners
know what was going on in their
community.
DeNicola said this was the only
live local programming offered to
them.
She said her program was
canceled because she went in to
do her show one day and dis-
covered the station had been off
the air. DeNicola said she had to
find an engineer to help her, and
later got her show started with the
engineer's help.
After DeNicola complained
about the incident, DeFlumer
told her she would be required
to record her show a week in ad-
vance and she could only have two
guests per month.
"She wanted to change the for-
-mat of the entire show," DeNicola
said. "I didn't want her to do that,
so I quit."
DeFlumer said it is common
practice for shows to be recorded
a week in advance. She said it did
not pull the show off the air.
"There is a certain group of
people who are malcontent,"
DeFlumer said. "Most of our lis-
teners are very positive except this
one group of people. We expected


a backlash from this show going
off the air."
Joan Miles, a listener since 1993,
said she has not received a sched-
ule since DeFlumer- took over in
1999.
Many long-time listeners have
complained about not knowing
the schedule. Both Miles and
Massey said they haven't known
the schedule for several years.
DeFlumer said programs are
available and are sent out when
they send out the receivers.
"Many people haven't gotten
updated programming because
they've had their receivers for
years," DeFlumer explained.
Many listeners are upset about
the lack of a representative voice.

When the service began, there
was an advisory board of listeners,
volunteers and workers who gave
feedback and comments about the
service, Massey said.
This board was extinguished
in 2000 by Henry Pensis, station
manager. He said the program
didn't need a board because it had
grown so much.
Many long-time volunteers
quit helping at the station because
they couldn't get in contact with
DeFlumer, said Norman Jensen, a
volunteer for five years.
Jensen said he quit because
he could never get in touch with
DeFlumer.
"A lot of people depend on this
service," Jensen said.

Gonzales' requests turned down


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

Former U.S. Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales will speak at UF on
Monday, but his speech will not go
exactly as he wanted.
Gonzales, who resigned from his
White House position in August after
a controversial tenure, made several
requests that were refused by Accent,
Student Government's speakers
bureau.
He requested that his representa-
tives choose which members of the
press cover the event and that they
not use television cameras and re-
cording devices during his speech,
his contract stated.
Gonzales also asked Accent not to
disclose the amount he was paid for
his speech $40,000, the contract
stated.
Steven Blank, Accent chairman,
said the requests were denied be-
cause they violated university polices


and possibly state statutes, but he
didn't know the exact rules broken.
Beth Waltrip, director of student
activities and manager of Accent's
legal and contractual issues, could
not be reached by press time.
Accent's refusal of the requests
did not cause any negotiating prob-
lems, Blank said.
The speakers
bureau did grant
Gonzales ,the
right to control
the question-and-
answer session
Gonzales after his speech.
Attendees must
write questions on index cards,
which will be collected and asked by
a moderator.
A faculty member from the Levin
College of Law will probably moder-
ate the speech, though no final deci-
sion has been made, Blank said.
Gonzales isn't the first visitor to
ask for special treatment, he said.
Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survi-


vor who famously documented his
experiences in his autobiography,
"Night," requested a similar ques-
tion-and-answer process when he
spoke in March 2006.
"It doesn't impede students' abil-
ity to ask some hard-hitting ques-
tions, and hopefully he'll have some
hard-hitting answers," Blank said.
Gonzales also asked that the
venue be adequately lit so he can see
the audience and that his lectern be
positioned so the audience can't see
his notes. But most of the requests
Gonzales made were more ordinary,
such as asking for a wireless micro-
phone and a glass of water on stage,
the contract stated.
Gonzales will appear at 7:15
p.m. at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts.
Free tickets for students with
Gator 1 Cards are still available to-
day at the Phillips Center and the
University Box Office.

Gonzales' contract.

Editorial
Thank God it's finally starting to feel like season other
than summer. It's time to put the sundresses and shorts in the
back of the closet and break out the sweaters and scarves. It's
time to put on a pot of chili and sip some hot cocoa. It's time
to trade in the Corona Light for a dark, wintry ale. It's time to
stop going to class and stay under the covers instead. But most
of all, it's time to read this week's frost-covered edition of...



Darts & Laurels
First up, we send a this-just-sends-a-chill-down-our-
spines DART to former U.S. Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales, who will be speaking at UF next week. He want-
ed to limit the press at the speech, and he didn't want the
amount he was being paid disclosed. He also didn't want
video or audio recorders allowed at the speech.
Hey, Alberto: This isn't a classified speech to the CIA.
You'll be talking to a bunch of college students. We'vegotta
ask, does he plan to say some things he doesn't want re-
peated? But we've got to give a that-warms-us-right-back-
up LAUREL to Accent and UF for saying no to Gonzales'
demands.
Next, we send a that-cold-blast-of-air-may-be-from-an-
F-16-flying-over-your-head LAUREL to UF's Air Force
ROTC program, which was ranked the No. 1 medium-sized
unit in the country for the first time in the program's 65-year
history. UF student-cadets lead the program and will serve
the country. With this news, we know they'll do it well.
Also in UF and high-rankings news, we give a who-
needs-a-Florida-winter-when-you-could-experience-
one-in-England-Mexico-or-China LAUREL to the UF
International Center. UF ranks 17th in the nation for inter-
national-student attendance, and it also ranks high in short-
term study-abroad participation.
It's great to be a global Gator, isn't it? However, only
about 5 percent of UF students who want to study abroad
actually do. Really, when else will you be able to travel to
almost any country in the world and call it "school"?
Once you have a job, traveling will probably be reserved
for vacation. The time is now. Get to the International
Center it's in the Hub, right next to Starbucks, so you can
get a steaming hot cappuccino while you're there. And you
won't even have to trudge through the snow, uphill both
ways like your parents did, to get there.
Speaking of great places to study abroad, how about
Sweden? It's the land of H&M, umlauts, Greta Garbo and
the Celsius temperature scale. What could we be forgetting?
Oh, yes. Here's a Momma-Mia-that's-a-spicy-Swedish-
meatball LAUREL for IKEA, the Swedish furniture design
company, which has taken Florida by storm, opening
two stores in two months. The Orlando location opened
Thursday morning, and several UF students ventured there
in search of Vreta, Isig, Besta Tofta and Likt.
IKEA is a college student's dream furniture because of
its modem design and low prices. It's like the SuperTarget
of home design, with all the imported Swedish food you
could ever want. Pickled herring, anyone? We hear it's a
great breakfast on a chilly winter morning.
Someone at UF doesn't need to save money by buying
IKEA furniture, and for that we have a how-about-buy-
ing-a-sweater-for-every-UF-student DART to UF President
Bernie Machen, who earns a startling $726,849 a year, in-
cluding benefits. That's almost five and a half times what
Gov. Charlie Crist earns. Assuming Bernie worked 40 hours
a week (but we know he must work more), he's earning
$350 an hour. Damn.
Meanwhile, UF is facing huge budget cuts. Maybe
Bernie's salary could be put to better use? Read more from
us on this issue soon if our fingers aren't frozen.

Opinions


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org,/opinion


One of former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' requests to Accent
was to position his lectern so the audience wouldn't see his notes.

Why doesn't Alberto Gonzalez want YOU to see his notes?


Column

Get your mind off of
y s everyone on a diet all of a sudden?
Maybe I'm imagining things, but it appears
there has been a recent outburst of weight-
loss frenzy among college students in the weeks before
Thanksgiving.
It could be fears of going home and seeing friends for
the first time in several months have prompted students to
panic about weight.
Or perhaps the coming holiday season is scaring stu-
dents into thinking if they don't lose weight now, they will
be twice as heavy once holiday feasting has ceased.
But whatever the reason, self-deprecating rants about
unwanted body fat and drastic goals to lose 15 pounds by
Christmas seem to be on a lot of people's agendas and
it's starting to piss me off.
I say this mainly because lately, I have been assigned the
position of Designated Moderator of my friends' daily Flab
Competitions.
"Look! Look at my stomach. I have a muffin-top now,"
one of my skinny friends complained as she lifted her shirt
in disgust, to which another of my fit friends replied, "Oh,
you think that's bad? Look at my legs. You'd think I'd be-
long in a forest with these tree-trunks."
It drives me nuts because there is no reason for any of
my friends to be upset about their bodies.
I know my friends aren't the only people who feel
insecure about their weight but unfortunately, most of us
are. Preoccupation with weight is commonplace in college.
We are bombarded with warnings of weight gain from the
Beginning.
I remember thinking, "Oh man, I don't want to gain the
Freshman 15," as I waved goodbye to my family on my first
day of college.


holiday weight gain
But really, it's OK if you've put
on a few pounds in college. It's
not the end of the world. What's
not OK is the way college students
complain about their bodies.
Colleen Shea When will people finally stop
Colleen Shea stressing over the little flab around
letters@alligator.org their arms?
When will women finally stop
trying to win Flab Competitions?
Instead of getting frenzied about losing a pants size be-
fore fall semester ends, maybe what we should do is start
feeling good about the way we look as we look now.
My mom gives pretty good advice. When I had a
pity party last year about the way I looked, she told me,
"Always be thankful for what you have. I used to look in
the mirror and hate myself. Now I look back at old photos
and think, 'Damn! I was a sexpot!'"
So let's try to feel good about ourselves and enjoy our
young bodies. So what if you put on a few pounds this se-
mester it happens. So what if your belly hangs over your
pants a little bit it's not going to kill you.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not-saying it's OK to eat
junk food and sit around all day. I'm just saying that ex-
treme diet and exercise habits aren't OK, especially around
this time of year, when people should be enjoying time with
friends and family.
Plus, who honestly wants to think about calories on
Thanksgiving?
Wear your elastic pants and eat an extra slice of pump-
kin pie. Love your body.

Letters to the Editor
Meyer doesn't deserve our attention
In response to Thursday's guest column, I
challenge Andrew Meyer to keep his mouth
shut for once.
He is a fluke and just another misguided
miscreant begging for attention who some-
how cluelessly stumbled into an undeserved
moment of celebrity.
His column contained nothing new or
inspiring, and his attempt at flair made it
all the more annoying. What makes people
think they should listen to him? What wis-
dom could we expect to come from him?
The Andrew Meyer has done enough
damage to UF.

Meyer's call for voters filled with irony
I can only hope Andrew Meyer's guest
column was published with ironic intent.

that political protesters are shrill, self-im-

apathetic Facebook junkies is wondering I have one for you: Black guy: "But seri-
why that stereotype is alive and well? ously, I really like fried chicken now."
Yes, we should be more politically active I'm obviously exaggerating, but both
than we are. But hearing Meyer extol the vir- quotes are loaded with stereotypes too eas-
tues of civic responsibility is like hearing Pat ily perpetuated by this kind of lax cultural

Online SG voting should be an option
During the fall Student Government
election, UF students again resoundingly
expressed the opinion that the voting system
at UF needs an overhaul. When 14 percent of
the electorate trudges through the rain to the
polls, it is time for a change.
Students For Online Voting offers UF that
change. Instead of having to find a polling sta-
tion and deal with the bureaucratic gridlock of
the current system, students would be able to
roll out of bed and vote on their computers.
Increased participation could make SG more
likely to respond to the needs of the student
body and the administration more likely to
listen to SG. It is all too easy for the adminis-
tration to get its way when fewer than 7,000
students make their voices heard at the polls.
Online voting would offer an innovative
way to make UF more democratic. We already
take classes, register and pay fees online. Why
shouldn't we vote there, too?

Campaign aims to limit some credit-card marketing


By NICOLE FINEO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Enticements of free food and
merchandise when applying for
credit cards could be a thing of
the past if a consumer advocacy
group has its way.
The U.S. Public Interest
Research Group recently launched
a nationwide campaign, "Truth
About Credit," in an effort to limit
aggressive credit card marketing


to college students.
Ed Mierzwinski, the consumer
advocate for the group, said he
is working to get the support of
lawmakers, including lobbying
"Congress to pass laws that regu-
late credit card offers to full-time
students.
Every campus has its own poli-
cy, he said, but in most states card
marketing on campus is legal.
In Florida, there are very few, if
any, laws regarding marketing on


"It is a challenge to get
the attention of today's
students."
Larry Ciaccia
president of AuthenTec Inc.

college campuses, he said.
Larry Ciaccia, president of
AuthenTec Inc., said college stu-
dents are a main target group for
credit card companies.


"Students are impulse buyers,
more likely to keep a credit bal-
ance and in many cases do not
have an existing credit card," he
said.
Alex Randon, an electrical
engineering student at UF, said a
free pita got him to sign up.
Pita Pit had a credit card rep-
resentative in the restaurant twice
last year, said Dan Beechner, a
manager at the restaurant.
Students who applied for a


specific card received a pita that
was paid for by the credit card
company. During the one-week
promotion, more than 100 pitas
were given to applicants, he said.
Similar promotions go on at
other restaurants in Gainesville.
The reason companies promote
with free food is because it works,
Ciaccia said.
"It is a challenge to get the at-
tention of today's students," he
said.


Homeless coalition raises concerns about Gainesville


* SHARING FOOD IN FRONT OF CITY
HALL IS ILLEGAL.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer
Gainesville was added to a list of 22 cities
that restrict providing meals to the homeless
in a November homeless advocacy report.
In a conference call Thursday morning,
the National Coalition for the Homeless and


National Law Center on Homelessness &
Poverty discussed the increase of cities pun-
ishing those who feed homeless people.
Gainesville city ordinances make sharing
food in front of City Hall illegal and require
food distribution centers for the homeless to
obtain a permit, the report stated.
Michael Stoops, executive director of the
coalition, said it named Gainesville the fifth-
meanest city in the country toward the home-
less in 2004.
"Gainesville is kind of self-nominating


themselves to be on the mean city list," he
said.
Concerns were also raised because the fu-
ture Gainesville one-stop homeless center will
be located 33 blocks north of
LOCal the downtown area, the report
News stated.
City spokesman Bob Woods
said the City Hall ordinance was created in
2003 by the city manager.
The city has allowed for some flexibility,
Woods said.


However, Stoops said the homeless can-
not get three hot meals seven days a week in
Gainesville.
"I think there's an effort in Gainesville and
elsewhere to drive the visible homeless out
from the downtown area," Stoops said.
Woods said the center, which would be lo-
cated on 3335 N. Main Terrace, would provide
various services in addition to meals.
"We think we can do better, and the citizens
in our community deserve better," Woods
said.

Senate collects


food for homeless


* MONEY DONATIONS ARE
BEING COLLECTED, TOO.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Turkeys, cans of corn and green
beans are what the Student Senate
has been thinking about since
Monday.
Sen. Anita McNulty, who rep-
resents UF sophomores, said the
Senate is collecting canned foods,
nonperishable food items and
money donations for homeless
shelters and families.
McNulty said she has been col-
lecting contributions from student
senators and anyone involved
in Student Government since
Monday.
She said all donations will be
given to Bread of the Mighty Food


Bank, a part of America's Second
Harvdst, which is the largest chari-
table hunger-relief organization in
the United States.
She said the Senate has a ser-
vice project each semester, but this
is the first year it has sponsored a
Thanksgiving food drive.
" About 40 or 50 cans of food and
at least $75 in
.Student donations have
already been
collected for the
drive, she said.
McNulty' said she expects to
have about 200 cans of food and
$100 to donate by Tuesday, the last
day of the drive.
"I think that we're all so blessed
in certain ways to have homes,
and there's a lot of people less
fortunate," McNulty said. "It's
just a great way to give back to the
community."


Interest in languages rising


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
While numbers of UF
international students and
study-abroad participants are
on the upswing, many stu-
dents are also opting to.learn
foreign languages from the
comfort of Gainesville.
Enrollment in UF's lan-
guage courses is on the rise,.
following national trends of
booming Spanish classes and
fast-growing interest in learn-
ing Arabic and Chinese, said
Dennis Jett, director of UF's
International Center.
He said the growing inter-
est in Arabic began after the
Sept. 11 attacks.
Students want to be able
to understand the changing
world they live in, he said.
Enrollment in Arabic


classes nationwide has more
than doubled from 2002 to
2006, according to the latest
findings from the Modem
Language Association of
America.
"I think it's one of the
biggest gifts."
Janie Fouke
UF provost

The findings state that
Arabic has, for the first time,
jumped into the top-10 list of
the most popular languages.
"Almost all the language
courses have benefited some-
what in recent years as people
understand the importance of
having an international expe-
rience," Jett said.
Over time, some courses,
such as French and German,
may have had reduced enroll-


ment, Jett said, but he's still
pleased with students' overall
international interest.
"I wish I'd done it when I
was young," UIF Provost Janie
Fouke said about learning a
foreign language. "I think it's
one of the biggest gifts."
Fouke said she thinks too
many students are only fo-
cused on taking the classes
they need to graduate and get
a job right away.
Instead, they should try to
learn a new language and be-
come a "multi-dimensional"
person, she said.
Many UF colleges don't
even have foreign language
requirements, she said.
But she said she didn't
think those requirements
would change anytime soon.
If students want to take lan-
guage classes, they're able to,
Fouke added.

The Greek Judicial Board has recommended multiple pun-
ishments for a UF fraternity following an Aug. 30 party at its
house where members served alcohol to minors.
At a meeting Tuesday, the board recommended UF's chap-
ter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity be placed on conduct proba-
tion through fall 2008, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.
In addition, the board suggested that the fraternity, known
as Phi Deltbe prohibited from recruitment during spring 2008.
The fraternity will also be barred from recruitment through fall
2008 unless it meets certain requirements.
The sanctions include performing community
Greek service, not holding socials through summer 2008
L-fe and only holding dry socials during fall 2008.
Phi Delt is allowed to participate in intramurals and
philanthropic events.
Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students, has the final say
on the suggestions. If he approves them, Phi Delt can appeal
the decision to Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student
affairs.
The board had already warned the fraternity about a simi-
lar incident, Orlando said.
Matt Helgeson, Phi Delt president, said the fraternity has
offered to work with UF in whatever way possible.


UF students become mentors at elementary school


* VOLUNTEERS DEDICATE 30
MINUTES TO KIDS EACH WEEK.

By JACKIE HORSTMANN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Children at Metcalfe Elementary School
giggled with excitement Wednesday when
a group of UF students stepped into their
cafeteria.
Since October, UF students have been
paired up with students from Metcalfe as
part of Project MASCOT, Mentoring Alliance:
Students and Communities Outreaching
Together.


The project is a one-year, nonprofit pro-
gram for UF student volunteers interested in
helping and motivating elementary-school
children in the Gainesville area, according to
its Web site.
Every week, the volunteers dedicate 30
minutes to mentor children who are "at risk,"
and as of Monday, every third- and fourth-
grade student at Metcalfe has a mentor, said
Kelley Bonds Kostamo, partnership special-
ist for Alachua County School Volunteer
Program.
"I'm surprised college students would be
willing to put in their time and miss getting
sleep to mentor these kids," said Nathaniel
Jones, student specialist at Metcalfe.


At Metcalfe, about 75 percent of the stu-
dents receive free lunches, Jones said. He said
the majority of these children come from low-
income households.
"I tip my hat off to students who
come and mentor."
Nathaniel Jones
student specialist at Metcalfe

The children at Metcalfe have problems
identifying good role models, he said. Project
MASCOT will be able to keep the children
interested in not only their schoolwork but
also in developing hopes and dreams for their


future, Jones said.
"I tip my hat off to students who come and
mentor," he said.
. While some UF students are required to
participate in community service, others take
the initiative because they want to make a big-
ger difference in Gainesville.
Andrew Schneider, a 20-year-old UF biol-
ogy major, said he decided to participate in
Project MASCOT because he thought it would
be fun and rewarding to help at-risk children.
Schneider and his student, George, meet
every Wednesday at noon to hang out, play
sports and just talk about life.
"He smiles every time I visit him,"
Schneider said as he gave George a high-five.

Faculty Senate moves closer to altering honor court


* THE COURT MAY NOT
HEAR DISHONESTY CASES.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

UF's Student Honor Court is
one step closer to losing its ability
to hear academic dishonesty cases,
which is its primary responsibility.
UF's Faculty Senate passed a
resolution Thursday urging Patricia
Telles-Irvin, vice president for stu-
dent affairs, to cut the number of
ways UF handles student academic
dishonesty cases.
Generally, students charged
with academic dishonesty can
choose to have their cases heard by
the Student Conduct Committee,
which comprises students and
faculty, or by the Student Honor
Court, where faculty only partici-
pate as witnesses.
Other venues for hearing cases
include an administrative hearing,
a resolution meeting with faculty
and students, or student conduct
committees at the Health Science
Center and the Levin College of
Law.
The Senate suggested removing
the honor court and administrative
hearings because they did not have
adequate faculty and student repre-


sentation, respectively.
Gene Zdziarski, dean of stu-
dents and co-chair of the Senate
committee that made the sugges-


tions, said another concern was the
low number of cases heard by the
honor court.
In the last six years, the court


handled 22 of 1,095 academic dis-
honesty cases at UF, Zdziarski said.
Faculty members and students
said the court setting was inap-

propriate for most of the cases,
and it generally created hostility,
he added.
But some students expressed
displeasure with the possible re-
moval of the court.
Fairuze Sofia, a third year UF
law student and the court's chief
defense counsel, said she thinks
faculty members wanted to remove
the court because they felt-slighted
by their lack of involvement.
"The whole point of honor court
is to give students a fair hearing,"
Sofia said. "Other processes might
not help much if a teacher already
thinks a student is guilty."
In addition, Yooni Yi, Student
Body President Ryan Moseley's
chief of staff, and Vanessa Goodwin,
Student Body vice president, pre-
sented Student Governments con-
cerns and suggestions.
SG's recommendations, which
will also be sent to Telles-Irvin, sug-
gested reforms to the court instead
of its removal.
Possible changes included ap-
pointing faculty advisers to the
student attorneys and having the
Dean of Students Office review the
cases.
"We're not saying the Student
Honor Court doesn't have prob-
lems, because it does," Goodwin
said. "But it has been a part of us
since 1914."

UF celebrates


Gatorade history

* A CEREMONY WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE THE
O'CONNELL CENTER TODAY.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Like a lime-green, sticky flagship, Gatorade led UF
to research greatness.
Now, after enjoying more than 40 years of electro-
lyte-laced hydration, UF is venerating the drink with a
historical marker and a ceremony outside the O'Connell
Center today at 1:30 p.m.
The dedication will be the first in a series of three-
foot-tall markers to honor UF's triumphs in research,
service and education, states a memo from UF's History
Advisory Council to UF's deans, directors and depart-
ment chairs.
About 200 people were invited to the event, includ-
ing Gatorade's original researchers.
The historical marker program is sponsored by
the UF Alumni Association, and the first marker cost
$1,460, said Carl Van Ness, UF's historian.
"When it came time to pick the first one, Gatorade
was easy," Van Ness said. "It combines everything-in-
novation, research and, of course, the sports program."
Sweet roots
In 1965, four researchers in UF's College of Medicine
created a drink to replenish fluids, electrolytes and carbo-
hydrates lost during exercise or sports.
Van Ness said the UF football team first tested the
drink during practice.
O n The first time players guzzled it during
Campus a game was when UF played then-fifth-
ranked Louisiana State University, he said.
"We were heavy underdogs, but we
ended up beating them," he said. "We outlasted them."
Van Ness said LSU team members and spectators
were amazed by the amount of energy the Gators team
sustained throughout the game.

Rewards and concerns
The rest is Gatorade history, and UF still reaps the
monetary benefits of sweet, liquid success.
Over the last five years, UF received about $12.58
million in royalties from Gatorade sales, wrote Steve
Orlando, UF spokesman, in an e-mail.
But that piece of the pie could crumble if national
health regulations call for public schools to remove the
sports drink from their cafeterias.
Sen. Tom Harkin, a Democrat who represents Iowa,
recently introduced a bill that would set new nutritional
standards in public schools, according to a report from
The Washington Post.
Public health advocates are pushing to ban sports
drinks and sweetened waters, citing high sugar, sodium
and calories as nutritional downfalls.
Janis Mena, GatorWell Health Promotion Services nu-
tritionist, said removing Gatorade from school cafeterias
could help curb obesity at a young age.
Gatorade wasn't created for children, Mena said.
Even when used during exercise, it should be diluted
and consumed in small amounts.
Orlando said UF officials would not comment about
whether stopping sales of the drink at elementary or high
schools could severely hurt UF's revenue but said UF
would certainly not remove Gatorade from campus.

Making history
UF hopes to erect three to four historical markers on
campus each year, Van Ness said.
The next two will commemorate UF's Everglades
research and the UF Baldwin Library of Historical
Children's Literature.
He said the idea for the marker program came from a
similar one at Penn State University.
Like Penn State, UF will eventually offer walking
tours from marker to marker around campus to show-
case UF's historical contributions, he said.
He said he couldn't estimate how many posts might
someday dot UF's campus because the number will con-
tinually grow.
"As long as we keep making history, we'll continue to
put in historical markers," Van Ness said.

STUDENT LIFE

Fly-fishing brings students together


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org


Seven UF students will drive 10 hours
today to go fishing.
The students are members of the UF
Fly-Fishing Club, and they're heading
to North Carolina, where the fishing is
good.
Brian Kasten, the Fly-Fishing Club
president, said fly-fishing is the old-fash-
ioned way to fish.
He started the dub because he didn't
want to make the long trips for fishing by
himself. The dub has 27 active members.
Kasten said he has been fishing since
he was 10 years old and taught himself
how to cast.
Now he's teaching novice fishermen
the special casting style of fly-fishing
over on the fields by Hull Road on UF's
campus.
"It's more difficult so it's more re-
warding when you catch something,"
said Kasten, a UF biology junior.
One of the main differences between
fly-fishing and regular fishing is the
equipment, he said.
For fly-fishing rods, the fishing line is
thick and bright green instead of a clear.
"We give the fish every single advan-
tage," he said.
Fly-fishermen also use waders spe-
cial pants used when they stand in the
water and waterproof boots.
He said living in Florida is a bar-
rier for practicing the sport he loves. So
the group travels to places like North
Carolina and Georgia.
Kasten and the six other students will
spend the weekend in a riverside cabin
owned by Davidson River Outfitters. The
cabin is about 20 miles from any grocery
store, he said.
The group will spend eight-hour days


fly-fishing for rainbow trout on a private
river.
Kasten said as a student group, they
have been welcomed by different fish-
ing outfitters and been given special
discounts. For Kasten, that's another
advantage of the club.
"Fly-fishing could be a very expensive
sport kids won't be able to do without an


outlet like this," Kasten said.
Kyle Humphreys, vice president of
the Fly-Fishing Club, said fishing loca-
tions charge about $160 a day per person
to fish. For him, fly-fishing is more spe-
cial than regular fishing.
"The casting in itself is very neat,"
Humphreys said. "It's almost like an
art."

Small changes can help reduce water consumption


* CHANGING SPRINKLER
SCHEDULES CAN HELP.

By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Writer

UF researchers have found
that going green to protect the
water supply doesn't mean sac-
rificing a green lawn.
Two recent studies from
UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences reveal that
simple changes to lawn-watering
practices can drastically reduce
water use..
Researchers found that hom-
eowners could save a significant
amount of water and money by
changing automated sprinkler
schedules and using soil mois-
ture-sensor technology.
The sensor can monitor how
much moisture is in the grass'
roots and shut off the lawn's ir-
rigation system accordingly.
Melissa Baum Haley, research
coordinator and a graduate stu-
dent in the department of agri-
cultural and biological engineer-
ing, worked with seven other
researchers on the studies, which
were led by Michael Dukes, as-
sociate professor of agricultural
and biological engineering.
For the first study, the research
team worked with 27 Florida ho-
meowners to determine the best
settings for automated in-ground
sprinkler systems.
The team concluded that ho-
meowners could cut monthly
water usage by 30 percent by


changing their sprinkler settings
seasonally.
The average amount of water
saved for the homes in the study
was 13,000 gallons per month.
These changes would be easy
to implement, Haley said.
_---
~


The study also found that ho-
meowners who used short-range
sprinklers on ornamental plants
along with the adjusted watering
schedule cut water usage in half.
In its second study, the team
asked if soil-moisture sensors


could also be used to control the
amount of water a lawn receives.
A soil-moisture sensor is a
small device placed in the dirt
beneath the root bed of the grass.
By testing a variety of mois-
ture sensors on the market, the

team found that it conserved an
average of 69 to 92 percent of
water.
In both studies, the lawns
undergoing the experiments
remained healthy and green, in-
dicating that less water did not
decrease plant health.
These studies also indicate
that most people are significantly
overwatering their lawns.
Haley compared the grass root
zone, where grass absorbs water,
to a gas tank.
Although people may think
more water will equate to health-
ier grass, like a gas tank, the root
zone can only hold so much.
"By irrigating for one or two
or three hours, you're not going
to have more water stored in that
root zone," she said.
Haley said 45 minutes is more
than enough time to water any
one area.
As Florida continues to grow
at breakneck speed, the need for
water conservation will increase,
she said.
As the state's population in-
creases, construction of family
housing increases.
These houses will most likely
come with automated sprinkler
systems.
If every house with these
automated systems adopted the
seasonal scheduling changes,
enormous amounts of water
would be saved, Haley said.
She encouraged homeowners
to look into making these chang-
es and being more responsible
about water conservation.


Irrigation Revelation: UF researchers have found that homeowners can save money by saving water. Here's a breakdown of the research by the numbers.
3 0% amount seasonal water usage will be cut by resetting automated sprinkler systems 6 9-92% amount of water usage cut by .utilizing soil moisture sensors
2 0% amount of water saved by utilizing a drip irrigation system with ornamental plants 1 3.0 0 0 amount of gallons of water per month saved by homeowners who changed their

SFCC student organizes campus self-defense panel


* STEPS FOR'VICTIM SUP-
PORT WERE DISCUSSED.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

When walking alone at night,
stick to well-lit areas. Keep your
hands empty. Be aware of your
surroundings.
But above all, don't talk on
your cell phone, Cpl. Jaime
Kurnick of the Gainesville Police
Department said at the Safety
101 Panel Discussion at SFCC on
Thursday night.
The panel also included speak-
ers on sexual abuse, domestic
abuse, UF resources for students


and self-defense.
The panel was put on by
Dianna Ordway, a SFCC stu-
dent, as an assignment for the
Community Advocates Program,
a seven-week course that bridges
students to the community.
Her assignment was to do a
safety or crime prevention pro-
gram, she said. Though she's
been planning it for weeks, re-
cent assaults in Gainesville have
made topics of rape, self-defense
and victims' services appropri-
ate, she said.
The program had special
meaning to Ordway, who said
she was sexually abused as a
child.
She said she wanted others to
know about resources that she


did not.
Kurnick said at the panel that
people should not hesitate to call
police when they see something


suspicious.
"We want to
Santa Fe
Community
College


be bothered. We
want to know
what's happen-
ing. We want
people to be
safe," she said.


Tanja van der Veen, a victim's
advocate with UF, brought up
safety resources offered by the
university, such as the Student
Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol van
service and the blue-light poles
on campus.
Women can also participate in
a free three-day Rape Aggression
Defense course, she said, of-


fered once a month through the
University Police Department.
Denise Guerin, a self-defense
instructor at SFCC, also suggest-
ed a self-defense course being of-
fered at Unified Training Center.
Laura Kalt of the Alachua
County Rape Crisis Center, sug-
gested what to do in case a crime
does occur.
-"First and foremost is to
believe that person," she said.
Victims also need to know the
crime is not their fault, talk to
a professional and see a doctor,
she said.
The first 48 hours to 72 hours
after the crime are the most
crucial for getting evidence, she
said, when many victims are still
unsure of whether to report the


crime.
In Alachua County, she said,
victims can now get a forensic
exam immediately and take 90
days to decide whether to submit
any evidence.
Policies have also changed
, in regards to domestic violence,
GPD Detective Bruce Ferris said.
"There was a time when an of-
ficer would show up and there'd
be a woman beaten up, and he'd
say, 'Johnny, quit drinking and go
stay at Bubba's house tonight,'"
he said.
Now, GPD has a Domestic
Violence Unit, which Ferris
works with, dealing only with
domestic abuse.
"Nobody has the right to hurt
anybody else," he said.

SALARY, from Page 1

"It's all based on a market analy-
sis to ensure we're paying our presi-
dent fairly," Morgan said.
However, Machen said this year,
he's making the same amount he
made last year.
According to state law, only
$225,000 of Machen's salary can
come from state-appropriated fund-
ing, Morgan said.
"It's all based on a market
analysis to ensure we're pay-
ing our president fairly."'
Dianna Morgan
chairwoman of UF's Board of Trustees


The rest is funded by UF's athlet-
ic program and the UF Foundation,
the institution that handles dona-
tions to UF, she said.
"When you think about the fact
that UF is a $4.3 billion enterprise
rivaling some of the largest compa-
nies in the nation, it's a very com-
plex institution," Morgan said.
Given UF's wide scope of educa-
tional programs, as well as a major
health science program and hospi-


tal, she said Machen's compensation
is appropriate.
The board determined his sal-
ary by researching similar institu-
tions in the nation and in the state,
Morgan said.
She said parts of his salary are
only paid if he meets certain goals,
which are laid out by the board.
Most of Machen's goals this
year were focused on cutting uni-
versitywide costs and reducing the
budget.
UF has to cut $34 million from its
budget because of a recent tax-rev-
enue shortfall.
His contract covers five years
with a provision to extend it for an
additional three, Morgan said.
Machen assumed his position at
UF in January 2004.
Given UF's recent budget woes,
Morgan said it's even more impor-
tant to have a competent president.
She added that UF would not
consider lowering Machen's salary

ia Rutgers to test undefeated UF


Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator
UF forward Chandler Parsons rebounds during UF's 105-51 victory
over North Carolina Central on Wednesday at the O'Connell Center.


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

For one Gators player, Saturday's matchup
against Rutgers is turning into a family affair.
As the 7 p.m. tipoff nears, UF freshman Chandler
Parsons is fully aware that his grandfather will be in
Gainesville, and in the wrong locker room.
Parsons' grandfather, Don Parsons, played for
Rutgers from 1946-1950 and was a sixth-round draft
pick of the New York Knicks.
"He'll definitely be there in the (Rutgers) locker
room," Parsons said. "He was bothering me, but
I'm not a New Jersey guy. I'm not about all that cold
weather."
Parsons said his grandfather tried to push him
to go to Rutgers, but in the end the decision was a
no-brainer.
"Florida's the best place to be," Parsons said. "I
know he played there, he did his thing there. But I'm
a Gator, and I'm proud of it."
When asked if his grandfather would use his rela-
tionship against him to help Rutgers prepare for the
6-foot-9 forward, Parsons said he hoped not.
"That would be dirty if he did, but I doubt it," he
said.
Parsons is coming off an impressive performance
against North Carolina Central, where he led the
Gators with 22 points, grabbed eight rebounds and
dished out seven assists in 18 minutes.
Parsons said Rutgers (3-0) poses the biggest chal-
lenge for the young Gators squad (3-0).
"They're a great team," Parsons said. "The Big
East is a great conference. ... We'll be ready for
Rutgers."
UF coach Billy Donovan seconded the notion.
"Certainly the most talented team we're playing
up to this point is Rutgers," Donovan said. "That's
going to be a heck of challenge for us on Saturday."
As part of the Blue Ribbon Challenge, Rutgers
and UF have both played the same opponents thus


far. Although both are undefeated against the bunch,
Rutgers barely edged Tennessee Tech 70-64 at home,
whereas the Gators dominated the same Golden
Eagles team 93-65.
Rutgers is averaging only 74 points per game dur-
ing the event, compared to the Gators' 91.
The Gators have impressed Donovan so far. After
UF's 105-51 win against North Carolina Central,
Donovan said that although the competition has
been minimal, he's proud of the way his team has
played.

"I'm very happy with how we've shot the
ball, and how we've passed the basket-
ball so far. It's encouraging to see them
play together."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach


"I thought the last two games they had a reason
to feel good about themselves," he said. "I think that
if I was sitting up here telling you our team came
out complacent, selfish and didn't play together,
you know what, I would be upset. I would be saying
there was youthfulness, but after this game I can say
we've showed some maturity, which is good to see."
The Gators are averaging almost 21 assists per
contest so far, a trend Donovan thinks has been the
key to their early season success.
-"I'm very happy with how we've shot the ball,
and how we've passed the basketball so far,"
Donovan said. "It's encouraging to see them play
together."
After breaking a school record for consecutive
wins at home against Tennessee Tech last Sunday,
the Gators will aim for a new milestone in Saturday's
contest.
With a win, Donovan will have 300 career victo-
ries, 265 of which he amassed during his tenure at
UF


Gators head to Nebraska for season's first road game


* BROOKS HOPES TO IMPROVE ON
POOR SHOOTING PERFORMANCE.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

The UF women's basketball team is go-
ing to find out this weekend if it can play
as well on the road as it has at home.
The Gators (2-0) travel to Nebraska for
their first road game Saturday at 6:05 p.m.
The Cornhuskers (2-0) are coming off an
80-59 victory against another Southeastern
Conference team, Mississippi, which was
projected to finish higher than UF in the


conference's preseason polls.
Players and coaches talked about the
importance of staying focused while play-
ing away from home.
"You can't be distracted by sleeping in
a hotel," UF coach Amanda Butler said.
"You can't be distracted by travel and just
things that are different from our day-to-
day routine."
Senior guard Depree Bowden hopes
to help talk her team through the hostile
environment.
"There's going to be a lot of fans and
everyone's going to be against us," she
said. "We gotta keep together as a team
and just try to be a family."


After a scoreless 0-for-10 shooting night
against Robert Morris on Monday, junior
guard Sha Brooks put in some extra shoot-
ing time before each prac-
tice in an attempt to im-
prove against Nebraska.
Women's. "I most certainly don't
want to have another
Basketball game like I did the other
day," Brooks said. "I was
getting good shots, they just wouldn't fall.
You have bad games like that."
The game poses yet another challenge
in the post for the Gators.
Cornhuskers senior Danielle Page
earned Big 12 Conference Player of the


Week honors Monday after totaling 24
-points and averaging 8.5 rebounds in her
first two games.
The 6-foot-2 forward came off the bench
against the Gators in the Cornhuskers' 81-
73 victory last season and scored 15 points
and added seven rebounds in just 18 min-
utes.
Meanwhile, junior forward Marshae
Dotson comes off one of the better games
of her career, racking up 25 points and 16
rebounds against Robert Morris.
Butler looks to the team's experience
against high-quality post players to help
them through yet another frontcourt chal-

Abdullah hits scoring stride in time for NCAA Tournament


By KARL HYPPOLITE
." Alligator Writer

Finally, there's been an
Ameera Abdullah sighting.
After a quiet season offen-
sively, it appears the preseason
first-team All-Southeastern
Conference player is regaining
her 2Q06 form.
Abdullah scored two goals in
UF's 4-1 win over Georgiarin'the


SEC title game.
.It was the first multiple-score
game of the year for the junior,
who finished the regular season
with just two scores.
The third-seeded Gators
open the NCAA Tournament at
7 tonight against Miami, and
Abdullah is expected to play a
major role offensively.
UF features three players who
have'scored at least seven goals


this season.
If Abdullah can recapture
the offensive
aggression she
displayed in
her sophomore
season when
she scored 11
S goals, it would
make the Gators
Abdullah even tougher to
defend.


"On any given day, anyone
can score," forward Ashlee Elliott
said. "Shana (Hudson) scored,
I've scored, Lauren Hyde's
scored. Honestly, you can't scout
this team, because we're all ca-
pable of scoring and we can score
from anywhere on the field.
"Ameera scoring is an awe-
some thing. I'm glad she got
those goals because if she takes
it into the NCAAs, she could be


unstoppable."
In a way, it seems Abdullah's
season is just beginning.
The Denver native injured
her left peroneal tendon in the
third match of the season against
South Florida.
The injury caused Abdullah
to miss the Gators' next four
matches.
Though she returned to the

UF VOLLEYBALL

Gators intend to say goodbye to seniors with ceremony


By EVAN DREXLER
-. Alligator Writer

When the UF volleyball team
takes the court Sunday for its last
home match of the regular season,
the Gators might have a hard time
keeping it together.
That's because UF will hold a
post-match ceremony to say good-
bye io seniors Marcie Hampton,
Kisya Killingsworth, Amber McCray
and Angie McGinnis, whose names
litter the school's record book.
"Any one of those four could be
the poster child for our program,
and you would stand here and be so
proud of it," Coach Mary Wise said.


They'll wrap up their home
regular-season careers when the No.
7 Gators (24-1, 17-1 Southeastern
Conference) play tonight at 7 against
Alabama (15-12,12-6 SEC) and then
Sunday against Mississippi State
(12-15, 7-11) at 1:30 p.m.
"It's crazy, because I remember
my freshman year watching the four
seniors go, and it was like, 'Wow,
that day is so far away for me,'"
fifth-year senior Amber McCray
said. "It's amazing just how quickly
time passed, and that day is here."
Now that she'll be playing in her
last matches, she has mixed emo-
tions.
"It's a joyous day, but it's sad,


too, because you love playing, in the
O'Dome, and I'm definitely going to
miss it," McCray said.
"Any one of those four
could be the poster child
for our program, and you
would stand here and be
so proud of it."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach


During her career, she has won
five SEC championships and was
a member of the team that played


in the 2003 national semifinals, but
what she'll remember most is her
teammates.
"I got a chance to play with three
other amazing players, amazing
women, and just being able to reflect
on our careers that we've had here,
I think is a huge deal for us and
everyone else," McCray said. "You
can't explain it. It's a bond like no
other and I'm happy to be a part
of it."
Hampton has been described as
the face of UF volleyball, starting
strong by making SEC All-Freshman
team in 2004 and working her way
into the record books in four years.
Killingsworth has been a force


ir her four years here, as well, and
made the All-SEC first team in 2005.
McGinnis earned a starting role
in her first season, acquired the most
assists in UF history by a setter and
took home SEC Player of the Year
honors last season.
Put all that together, and you
have one of the best senior classes in
Gators history.
Libero Elyse Cusack, a sopho-
more, knows she'll cry when the
seniors are saying their goodbyes to
the O'Connell Center crowd.
"This senior class has been amaz-
ing," Cusack said. "They're all great
people, they're great teammates, and
I'm going to miss each of them."


Last season's 13-game losing skid began with Huskers


Recruits sign


letters of intent

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

True, one of the greatest senior classes in UF volleyball
history is leaving school after this season.
But the volleyball program announced it is reloading
Wednesday, as an outstanding class of recruits signed
national letters of intent for next season.
"This group has the same opportunity to leave their
mark all over our program before they're done," UF coach
Mary Wise said. "We're excited about getting them all."
The class includes PrepVolleyball.com's overall No.
1-ranked player, setter and outside hitter Kelly Murphy,
who comes from Joliet Catholic Academy in Joliet, I.
Wise said Murphy will likely see action both as a setter
,. and a hitter.
Her list of achievements is well worth drooling over
for Gators fans: Her high school won regional crowns all
four years, she helped the USA Junior National Team to a
fourth-place finish at the 2007 FIVB Junior National World
Championships and she helped her team win national
titles in the 2007 and 2006 Junior Olympics.
Middle blocker Cassie Anderson signed from
Bakersfield High in California.
Wise sees Anderson being one of the
quickest middle blockers in UF history
and someone the setters will look for-
ward to assisting.
Volleyball "Cassie will remind people of per-
Volleyball haps Kelsey Bowers in being very elite
off one foot," Wise said.
Anderson will be joined in the middle with 6-foot-2
Betsy Smith from Wesleyan School in Atlanta, who won
state titles in all four years of high school.
Smith also played on the Junior National A2 squad
with UF freshman Kristy Jaeckel, who is redshirting this
season, so there should be some chemistry present when
they start to play.
"They got to be good buddies, and Kristy, because she
was redshirted, goes right into that class, and that is an-
other added bonus of that class," Wise said.
Rounding out the class is pure setter Cindy Bathelt,
who comes to Gainesville from Pine Creek High School in
Colorado Springs, Colo.
Bathelt will likely split time setting with current UF
sophomore Alli Cecchini. In a phone interview, Bathelt
said she was heavily recruited by Louisiana State and
Washington State, but chose UF knowing she would get
to play with athletes who could kill the ball.
"I expect to get a lot sharper, and just to grow and be-
come a more seasoned player," she said.
She had not spoken with any of. the other recruits as of
Thursday night, but said she will when all four have their
official visit to Gainesville today.
"From all the hype I've been hearing ... I'm really ex-
cited about it."

lenge.
In the team's 82-71 win against Xavier, the Gators
gave up 21 points to star forward Amber Harris but
held freshman Ta'Shia Phillips to just 6.
"It's definitely something that we hope we can
draw some confidence from," Butler said.
But the Cornhuskers will push the ball, as well, and
like the up-tempo style of play.
Last year's loss to the Cornhuskers, the teams'
first-ever meeting, began the downward spiral for UF,


which ended in a school-record 13-game losing streak.
The team hopes things will be different this season,
and two solid home wins show the
Gators are certainly capable of pro-
ducing a positive result.
Now it's up to UF to execute on
an opponent's floor.
"Keep the Gator mentality," ju-
nior guard Kim Critton said. "We
Critton gotta bring all our thoughts and
things we learned on the road with
to see if we can bring back a W."


Forward regains confidence after recovering from injury


SOCCER, from page 18

lineup, Abdullah never appeared
to regain the explosiveness that
made her so dangerous.
Abdullah didn't score her first
goal of the season until Oct. 21 in a
match against Alabama.
Following Sunday's outburst,
Abdullah feels she's fully recov-
ered from her injury.
"It's a real confidence booster,"
Abdullah said. "I've obviously
been pretty average this year and
having that type of game kind of
sends me back to the level I'm used
to playing at. I definitely like how
I'm playing now."
After missing four games and
multiple practices, Abdullah had
to readjust to the game's speed.
She readily admits her reactions
were slower than in prior seasons.
"My reaction to a lot of things
was slower," Abdullah said. "My
preparation for when a ball got
sent to me was a little behind.
And how comfortable I was with
my body and my ankle wasn't the
strongest, so I was cautious when I
got the ball."
Abdullah's return to form could
be a deciding factor for a team
hungry to stay alive this weekend.
UF is currently on a 12-game
winning streak, despite getting
little production from Abdullah
offensively.
Adding her to the mix may
put the team over the top, and UF
coach Becky Burleigh appears ex-
cited by that.


"She's been playing well for
us," Burleigh said. "She hasn't
been scoring as much, but she's
been doing other things. For her to
get on the board offensively makes
us that more dangerous of a team.


And if you look at who scored for
us on Sunday, it's the big three in
terms of our offense, Ameera, Stacy
(Bishop) and KeLeigh (Hudson). I
think that's a pretty intimidating
group for us."

UF FOOTBALL

Early recruiting class has makings of nation's best


By ROBERT CALLOVI
Alligator Writer

At this time last year, the UF football
team's recruiting class had 14 oral commit-
ments and arguably the best class in the
nation.
Unfortunately for the Gators, they
haven't been able to generate that same kind
of early success this season.
But even with fewer players, the 2008
recruiting class could turn out to be one of
the best in the country by National Signing
Day on Feb. 6.
"It will be a good class," said Scout.com
recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg. "Overall,
it is going to be another great group."
UF has already added talent and depth
where it needs it most its struggling de-
fensive back corps.
The Gators landed commitments from
two safeties Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's
Prep star Will Hill and Auburn (Ala.) High's


Dee Finley, who are ranked as the nation's
top two, respectively, at the position by
Scout.com.
UF also added a pair of in-state corner-
backs Pahokee High's Janoris Jenkins and
Orlando Boone High's Jeremy Brown..
Jenkins and Brown are rated the Nos. 9
and 16 corners in the country, respectively.
"Defensive back has to be one of the
class's biggest strengths," Newberg said.
"That is their biggest need, especially at
cornerback."
Almost all of the Gators' commits have
been on the defensive side of the ball.
Besides the defensive backs, UF has
gotten oral commits from three defensive
linemen Chaz Sutton, Troy Epps and
Earl Okine and from five-star linebacker
Brendan Beal.
St. Augustine High's Caleb Sturgis, the
nation's third-rated kicker, also committed.
With an already-loaded arsenal of offen-
sive weapons, the Gators aren't in need of a
lot of recruits on offense.


And with a limited amount of scholar-
ships available, UF is unlikely to sign many
players on that side of the ball.
"The Gators will fill their needs, because
they just don't have the number of scholar-
ships they have had in the past," Newberg
said.
"The Gators will fill their needs,
because they just don't have the
number of scholarships they have
had in the past."
Jamie Newberg
Scout.com recruiting analyst

The only offensive player to commit to
the Gators so far is Savannah (Ga.) Jenkins
High running back Franklin Green, rated
No. 29 at the position.
Most of the nation's top recruits have
already committed to a school, but there are
still a few players shopping their services.


Among those still considering VF are
quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back
Darrell Scott, linebacker Arthur Brown and
cornerback Patrick Johnson, all of whom are
the top players at their positions.
One of the nation's top offensive tack-
les, Matt Patchan, is also considering the
Gators, and he will have to make his deci-
sion shortly.
Patchan will graduate this falflfrom
Seffner Armwood High and enroll at his
school of choice for the spring semester.
Patchan is deciding between UF, LSU and
Miami, where his father also named Matt
- played in the late 1980s.
Facing top competition is a major concern
for Patchan.
"The biggest thing is talent on both sides
of the ball to help me develop in practice,"
said Patchan, who said he will announce his
decision some time after Dec. 15. "I want the
talent already there, wherever I go. I want

Young Saints look to avenge worst loss in two years


* SANTA FE WILL START
FOUR FRESHMEN.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer

Santa Fe will try to avenge a
75-58 loss at the hands of Indian
River Community College when the
Saints take the floor Saturday.
"I think we'll play much better
than we did 10 days ago," SFCC
coach Chris Mowry said.
SFCC (2-2), which starts four
freshmen, will have its hands full


at home with an experienced IRCC
squad (4-0) that will have five soph-
omores on the floor for a 4 p.m. start.
Leading IRCC will be sophomore
point guard Marvin Gray, who was
averaging 14.3 points along with
10.7 assists per game.
"He's really fast, really quick and
very hard to guard one on one,"
Mowry said. "We have to move
our feet, help out and recover when
we're beat."
Mowry pointed to three areas of
concern for the Saints on Saturday:
defensive transition, containing the
basketball and taking care of the ball


on offense.
"I don't know that we're trying
to do anything different, just better,"
Mowry said.


Santa Fe
Community
College


When the
teams played in
Fort Pierce, IRCC
got off to a fast
start by hitting
three of their first


four field goals.
"They kind of punched us in the
nose, and we didn't respond well,"
Mowry said.
Now SFCC will try to respond
after a 17-point loss at the hands of


IRCC, their largest margin of defeat
in more than two years.
SFCC consistently ranks among
the top teams in the state in three-
point attempts, a trend that was on
display Monday against the Tampa
Swish when the Saints hoisted 26
threes on their way to 35 percent
shooting from beyond the arc.
The key for the Saints might be
how well they are able to convert on
their three-point opportunities.
Mowry plans to stick with his
usual 10-man rotation and expects
more big-time contributions from a
bench that scored 51 points in the


last game.
"Our leading scorer came off the
bench last season," Mowry said. "If
we didn't think they could help us
win, they wouldn't play."
Mowry is going to need all 10 of
his players, eight of them freshmen,
to show experience beyond their
years if the Saints are going to hand
undefeated Indian River its first loss
of the season.
"Imagine if Florida was out there
playing a [Southeastern Conference]
school with five returning starters,"
Mowry said. "That's the challenge
we're up against.

Gators consider ..y -


effects of injuries '


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Maurkice Pouncey may under-
stand more than anyone how much
one injury can impact a football
team.
The right guard was injected into
the offensive line when senior Phil
Trautwein suffered a season-end-
ing stress fracture during preseason
workouts.
Pouncey himself suffered a high-
ankle sprain against South Carolina,
but he is expected to see consider-
able playing time against Florida
Atlantic this Saturday.
Dealing with injuries is as much a
part of a college football player's life
as the playbook, and players spend
countless hours devoted to getting
healthy for an upcoming game.
When the aches and pains pile
up again, the players just repeat the
cycle.
It's a rough routine, but the long-
term effects of the process can be
truly horrific. A football career can
leave a player's body in ruins and
result in brain damage, crippling or
even death.
Looking that far down the road
can be difficult in college, especially
for members of the UF football team,
who are locked in a heated battle for
the Southeastern Conference crown.
"It's a tremendous concern," UF
wide receiver Percy Harvin said.
"Just playing sports, you have to
treat yourself like a professional


athlete."
Harvin, a sophomore, has sus-
tained several injuries since arriving
in Gainesville, including tendinitis
in his heel that slowed him for sev-
eral weeks.
"I had bad tendonitis earlier this
year that came from last season," he
said. "I just kept blowing it off and it
came back to haunt me this year."
It took a talk with some team
trainers to make Harvin realize the
potential consequences of his injury,
he said.
"My trainer told me that some-
thing like that happened to (NFL de-
fensive end) Simeon
Rice, that he kept
putting it off to the
side and it came back
Football to get him," Harvin
said. "The trainers
always told me that
even if I have a little nick and I
think it's nothing, to get it treated
anyway."
The team's trainers and doc-
tors must do more than just treat
injuries.
Dr. Peter Indelicato, head physi-
cian for the UF Athletic Association,
said it is always tough to tell an ath-
lete he is unable to play because of
health reasons.
"Often there is a player who
wants to play, but you feel that it
isn't in their best interests to play,"
Indelicato said. "Sometimes they
find that difficult to accept initially,
but that's where you pull them in
the office and explain the risk-to-

years, Harvin has suffered several injuries that have forced him to miss practices and games.


benefit ratio to them.
"After they understand it better,
the vast majority of them are thank-
ful that there is somebody looking
after their interests."
While the players may get caught
up in the emotions of their season,
Indelicato and his staff must treat
them like any other patient.
"I think that we as doctors and
athletic trainers, that's our job, to
inform them of the potential conse-
quences of continuing their activi-
ties," he said. "It's no different than


any other patient that we have."
The consequences for some past
players have been dire. Many NFL
players sustain head, back or joint
injuries that leave them impaired
for life.
ESPN analyst Jesse Palmer, a
former Gators quarterback, can at-
test to the effects of a playing career
on a body.
Palmer, 29, said he gets pains in
his knees and back occasionally, de-
spite never injuring either seriously.
"It's easy to forget, especially in


this sport," he said. "You just take
your body for granted. It's impor-
tant that you take care of yourself,
do preventative things and listen to
the training staff."
After a brief career in the NFL,
Palmer knows -the potential harm
that can be done to a body.
"Everyone feels indestructible,
especially at this age in college,"
Palmer said. "You just feel like you
won't get hurt or that you are young
and can recover. At the end of the
day, it can come back sometimes."

Meyer, Zook could meet in bowl game


UF, Illinois both have three losses


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Urban Meyer succeeded Ron Zook at
UF, but lately Zook has followed Meyer's
recipe for success while at Illinois.
They might chase each other down
and meet in a New Year's Day bowl
game, either the Capital One Bowl or the
Outback Bowl.
A potential matchup of Zook against
the school that fired him could be the
most talked- about non-BCS game of the
postseason, giving incentive to bowl or-
ganizers to make it happen.
"It's certainly intriguing and adds
something to it," said Steve Hogan,
the executive director of Florida Citrus
Sports, which runs the Capital One Bowl.
"We are always interested in who is the
highest-ranked team, got the best resume
and is going to give us the best game on
the field. That's No. 1 for us.
"After that, if there's an interesting
story like that, it just makes it that much
better."
Before the season, you could have
likened Illinois' chances of sniffing a
January bowl game to Tim Tebow's odds
of winning the Heisman Trophy.
But here we are.
UF and Illinois have the same amount
of losses, three, and are separated by


seven places in the latest BCS rankings.
The Capital One Bowl pits the No. 2 Big
Ten team against the No. 2 Southeastern
Conference team, unless the BCS nabs at-
large teams from the conferences.
The Outback Bowl gets the third pick
from each league and generally chooses
an SEC East team.
Both bowls have leeway in their picks
and can take any team within ane game
in the overall standings of the best avail-
able school.
"That would hurt Gator Nation a
lot, Zook coming here and beat-
ing us."
Andre Caldwell
UF wide reciever

Barring multiple upsets, a handful of
Big Ten and SEC teams will be available
to both bowl games.
But no other matchups carry the same
appeal as UF-Illinois.
"Would that create addition conver-
sation? Sure it would," said Jim McVay,
president and CEO of the Outback Bowl.
"We wouldn't try to match the teams un-
less they would be deserving. These are
deserving, good teams."
Like Meyer did at Bowling Green and
Utah, Zook has laid a foundation for foot-


ball success at basketball-driven Illinois
since taking over in 2005.
The Illini will play in a bowl game for
the first time since the 2001 season, and
with strong recruiting, they likely aren't
going to fold any time soon.-
Just last week, Zook joined Meyer as
the only coaches to beat Ohio State in the
last two years.
Everyone has taken notice, even the
bowl fortune-tellers.
ESPN.com and CBSSports.com have
Zook penciled in to face his former team
in Orlando.
A trip back to the Sunshine State for
Zook would aid recruiting and allow him
to see guys he recruited play their final
college game.
However, the Gators would have just
as much to lose as Zook has to gain.
UF athletics director Jeremy Foley,
who fired Zook before the end of the 2004
season, will not comment on possible
bowl matchups.
He will not talk about the humbling
possibility of losing to Zook.
But the players will.
"That would hurt Gator Nation a lot,
Zook coming here and beating us," said
wide receiver Andre Caldwell, one of the
few current Gators who played for Zook
in 2003 and 2004.
"He's a great coach, and he's made
them a great team. But we still think we
have the advantage with better players
and better athletes."

Caldwell looks for record with Harvin sitting out


FOOTBALL, from page 31


Meyer said. "We're playing a really.
good team that is competing for a con-
ference championship. I think our guys
are just game to game trying to get bet-
ter, and they're facing a good team."
Since the Georgia and Tennessee
games will be underway during the
Gators' game, there will be some con-
sider-able scoreboard-watching from
the UF sideline.
"I'll probably be peeking up there
to look and see what's going on,"
Caldwell said. "But I've got to focus on
what I have to do."


Caldwell is expected to make up
for the absence of star wideout Percy
Harvin for the second straight game.
Harvin did not practice this week,
and spent several days receiving IV
treatments in an in-
firmary.
Without Harvin in
the lineup, the Gators
will have to diverge
from the usual plan
on offense.
"It'll probably be a
Harvin lot of what you saw
at South Carolina getting the ball to
me a lot more and using some of our

ginning," Fake Howard said. "It wasn't the juggernaut that it
is now."
Fake Howard gave the show the spark it needed. Earlier this
year, Tim Hardaway went on the show and announced to the
world his hatred for gay people. But, in the end, the bread and
butter of the show is Fake Howard, who has actually spoken
with the real Howard in a couple of segments.
"If I were to talk to him again, I guess it would really be to
tell him to win a few games," said Fake Howard, who did the
entire phone interview in character. "I'm concerned that this
could be his final stop. If he doesn't start winning soon, he's
going to be out of the coaching ranks, which means I'm out of a
job doing my Fake Howard."
Fake Howard discussed everything from the greatness of
Urban Meyer to keeping Tim Tebow in check.
"Beverlee hasn't seen me much in the bed," Fake Howard
said. "I've been staying up late trying to figure out a way to
stop this guy."
Fake Howard picked the Owls to beat the Gators 2-0, and his
pre-game speech could spark his predicted upset.
"I'm going to tell them when you come out on that field and
see all those players, you just hoot, and that's the key to win-
ning-,-ust hoot," Fake Howard said. "They won't know what
hit them. They'll think that you're trying to play football. But
instead, I just want you to hoot. That's the advice I'd give them.
I'm all about the hoot."
If only the Gators gave a hoot-about FAU.


other weapons to take up the slack,"
Caldwell said.
Caldwell has set career highs in
catches in each of the last two games,
with nine against Vanderbilt and 11
against the Gamecocks. If he duplicates
that success Saturday, he can break
Carlos Alvarez's all-time receptions
mark at UF with nine catches.
Having Harvin out could help
Caldwell break the record, but it's a
trade he isn't happy to make.
"I'm never excited when [Harvin]
isn't in there," Caldwell said. "He takes
a lot of stress and a lot of pressure off
of me."


Onto the picks!
Leading off with a record of 58-42, which is worse than the
guest pickers combined, is alligatorSports.org Editor Brian
"Schnellenberger's their star safety, right?" Steele, whose butt
has turned rosy red from all those Telly Concepcion post-prac-
tice slaps that leave him smiling with glee.
In second at 57-43 is Sports Editor Bryan "I hate this
job" Jones, who is contemplating sleeping in and skipping
Saturday's game after his exhaustive week of work.
Next up with a record of 54-46 is Assistant Sports Editor
Jenna "I hate this job, too" Marina, who doesn't understand
how the Navy Midshipmen can play in those sailor uniforms.
Falling in fourth at 53-47 is Mike "I want to be a male mod-
el" McCall, whose no-shave November plan fell through when
an overzealous stylist encroached on his peach fuzz.
And rounding out this sorry group in dead-ass last place
with a piss-poor record of 49-51, that's right, under .500, is Nick
"Microsoft Office 2007 can go to hell and die" Zaccardi, who is
using that as the cover for the real reason he hates his new lap-
top it doesn't have the massive cache of shirtless Ron Zook
photos that lived on his old computer.

BASES, from page 31

This is the perfect opportunity for
them to dominate a game from begin-
ning to end. They've all had spurts.
It just hasn't happened for a complete
game yet.
Even though it is against a Sun Belt
Conference team, a dominating perfor-
mance would give this young defense
the confidence it needs heading into
bowl season, not to mention next sea-
son.
Players have continually said youth
is no longer an excuse this late in the
season.
The Gators will still win handily no
matter how the defense plays Tebow
alone will make sure of that but the
Owls don't have that bad of an offense.
It's at least up there with Troy, which
scored 24 points on UF in the second
half. While Tebow and the offense will
be able to rest in the second half, this de-
fense still needs to play with a fire.
The Gators have something to prove,
and it takes more than one half .to do
that. The smallest amount of points
they've allowed has been 3, and that was
in the season opener against Western
Kentucky. Sorry, doesn't count.
But this will, even if you don't stay
for the entire game.
The players won't know it initially,
but walking off your home field know-
ing that you are capable of dominating
someone gives you a sense of confidence
that wasn't there before.
Spikes has talked about "Florida
Defense" and the pride that comes with
that.
It's something that helped lead UF to
the championship last year, and if the
Gators are able to find it this year, you
can bet it'll help them win the champi-
onship next year.

Fake Howard Schnellenberger, aka
Howard Schnellenfraud, aka South
Florida attorney Barry Kowitt.
The real Schnellenberger started
coaching at Alabama during the
George Wallace administration and
later won a national title with Miami
in 1983, his major claim to fame.
The fake Schnellenberger attended
Thug-U with famous Miami Herald
columnist Dan Le Batard during the
Schnellenberger reign and picked up
on the nuances of the coach, espe-
cially a unique deep, gruff voice.
"If you look at him, he looks like
he's stuck in a bit of a time warp,"
Fake Howard said. "He's a bit of a

Gators will eye SEC scoreboard Saturday


By MIKE MCCALL

No. 14 UF's matchup with Florida
Atlantic on Saturday won't be the most im-
portant game of the day for the Gators.
Instead, the games with the biggest


impact on UF's season will take place in
Athens, Ga., and Knoxville, Tenn., where
the two teams ahead of the Gators (7-3, 5-3
Southeastern Conference) in the race for the
SEC East will play.
Georgia (5-2 SEC) will host Kentucky
at 12:30 p.m., and Tennessee (4-2 SEC) will
welcome in-state foe Vanderbilt for a 2 p.m.

kickoff. a;
UF needs both the Bulldogs and
Volunteers to lose a conference game, and
if Georgia is successful this weekend, the
Gators' dreams of returning to the SEC
Championship Game will be crushed.
The magnitude of these games is almost
enough to overshadow UF's game against
FAU.
"There are some big games going on for
us with Georgia and Tennessee," receiver
Andre Caldwell said. "We need them to
lose, but every game we go into, we're play-
ing to win and blow a team out. You may
not think it's a big game, but it is to us."
"I always look at the talent level.
And this team has excellent talent
on defense. I compare them a lot to
Troy."
Urban Meyer
UF coach

The Owls (5-4, 4-1 Sun Belt) are locked
in a battle for the Sun Belt title with Troy,
whom UF defeated 59-31 in its second game
of the season.
The Gators are heavily favored in the
game, but they aren't overlooking FAU.
The Owls are comparable to the Trojans,
who outscored UF 24-10 in the second half.
"I always look at the talent level,-UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "And this team
has excellent talent on defense. I compare
them a lot to Troy."
Meyer isn't worried that his team will
take FAU lightly.
"The film doesn't lie, that's the thing,"

NCAA FOOTBALL

Florida Atlantic coach motivates Owls with reputation


A By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Every time Florida Atlantic quar-
terback Rusty Smith has a chat with
Coach Howard Schnellenberger, he
sees them.
"On one hand there's the national
championship ring, on the other, the
Super Bowl ring," Smith said. "He
always has them on."
Schnellenberger hasn't won a
national championship during his
seven years at FAU, but if you peer
back into the early '80s before any
statewide team was regularly con-
tending for national titles you'll
see Schnellenberger as the architect
of the Miami football program.
He took over a Hurricanes pro-


gram in 1979 that was in shambles.
It was on the verge of being shut
down by administration.
Then, just four years later, Miami
won the national championship.
After deciding to leave Miami,
Schnellenberger went to Louisville,
and nearly did the same thing. The
Cardinals never won the national
championship, but Schnellenberger
did lead them to the program's first
national ranking and a 34-7 upset of
Alabama in the 1991 Fiesta Bowl.
"He's rebuilt the University of
Miami," said Smith, who has 20
touchdowns to seven interceptions
on the season. "He's rebuilt the
University of Louisville. Then FAU
came to him, and he said, 'How
awesome would it be to do some-
thing nobody's ever done before?'"


So far, so good.
FAU's football program started
in 2001, but the Owls are 5-4 and
4-1 in the Sun Belt Conference and
are on course to play Troy which
UF throttled 59-31 earlier this season
- for the conference title.
"I'Tve gotten to
develop a football
team the great-
est coaches in
America haven't
always had this
Opportunity. To
I get to do that in
Schnellenberger my senior years
was a great
motivating factor," the 73-year-old
Schnellenberger said. "There are
only a handful of coaches that have
ever had the opportunity to do


something like this: Steve Spurrier,
Bobby Bowden, Bear Bryant,
Woody Hayes. All these guys devel-
oped programs that came in on the
ground floor."
With more than 45 years in the
coaching field, his experience has
become invaluable to his players.
"Every time I see the rings, I can't
believe I'm playing for a legend,"
Smith said. "You're playing for a
guy that's experienced everything
there is to be experienced. You know
everything that he has in the play-
book is going to work."
When Smith was first recruited,
Schnellenberger took him into a
room and showed him pictures of
the quarterbacks he has coached.
Smith recalled seeing clips of Jim
Kelly and Bernie Kosar.


Schnellenberger contributed to
the Miami Dolphins' undefeated
team in 1972 as the offensive co-
ordinator. He then coached the
Baltimore Colts from 1973-74.
As if he doesn't already boast
an impressive track record, he was
also the offensive coordinator at
Alabama under Bear Bryant and
was part of three title teams.
That's where the rings come in.
After all these years, it's safe to
say Schnellenberger's earned them.
"Some people may think I'm
pretentious to do that," he said.
"But it's been a major asset for me to
recognize that I've been associated
with those kind of things, especially
when you're developing a tradition.
"It's important that I wear the
rings."


WR to miss second game


* PERCY HARVIN IS STILL
RECEIVING IV TREATMENTS.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

UF wide receiver Percy Harvin will not
play against Florida Atlantic on Saturday.
He continued to undergo IV treatments as
he battles persistent migraines.
Coach Urban Meyer said the
sophomore was in the infirmary all day
Thursday, which makes his stay about
four days running.
Meyer said his parents came to
Gain ville three days ago to be with their
son.
-lie's feeling a little bit better," Meyer
said. "We're all hoping. ... I imagine
sometime we'll have a release, I guess."
Harvin was originally diagnosed with
a sinus infection and migraines more than
a week ago.
This is not the first time one of Meyer's
players has been incapacitated with mi-
graines.
During Meyer's tenure at Utah, the
team's captain, Morgan Scalley, also suf-
fered from headaches.


"I've seen them shut [a player] down
for four days before," Meyer said. "It's
awful."

POUNCEY TO PLAY: Even though Harvin
is out, the Gators did receive the
good news that right guard Maurkice
Pouncey will be able to play Saturday.
Pouncey suffered a high-ankle sprain
during the first quarter of the South
Carolina game last week and was ques-
tionable until Thursday.
"I've seen [migraines] shut
[a player] down for four days
before. It's awful."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

"He had a great day today," Meyer
said. "He heals well and he works at it. He
spent all day in the training room. He did
a really good job."
Meyer wasn't sure if Pouncey would
return to his starting role. Pouncey will
likely split time with redshirt freshman
Marcus Gilbert.
"He's a guy that's stepped in, doing a
very nice job," Meyer said of Gilbert.

Haden handles first year's trials

Joe Haden's life is all about speed.
From his lightning-quick feet and
flashy cars to his rapid adjustments
and ever-changing roles on the football
field, everything about Haden seems to
be fast.
But months into his first season
with the Gators, the freshman sensa-
tion learned just how fast tragedy can
strike and just how quick one's life can
take a dramatic turn.
As the 18-year-old cornerback,
whom UF teammates refer to as "rock
star," continues to live his life in the fast
lane, he now has his own star to look
up to.
And as her inspiration lingers,
Haden attempts to put his grief behind
him and move on as quickly as ever.

no comparison. I think it's just kind of
a fad thing."
When Haden stumbled upon a 1997
Ford Crown Victoria that was already
painted Gators orange, it was love at
first sight.
Haden and his father pimped out
the car with 22-inch chrome rims, 12-
inch speakers and three television sets.
Haden's father said his son more
than earned it by performing well in
school as well as on the field.
"The amount of money I put into
that Crown Vic pales in comparison to
the money I saved on his education,"
Haden said.

In the early hours of Oct. 12, friend
and scout team quarterback Michael
Guilford decided to give Slonina a ride
home from a party on his motorcycle.
Guilford struck a median at high
speed on Old Archer Road and SW
23rd Terrace. The two died instantly.
Haden learned of the accident from
a teammate, and he frantically searched
to find out if Slonina was all right.
"I was like, 'Oh my God, what
hospital is she at?'" Haden said. "I was
calling around, calling every hospital
around here. And nobody knew. They
were like, 'There's no Ashleys at any of
these hospitals.'"
At around 3 a.m., Meyer called
Haden and broke the news.
Devastated, all Haden could do was
weep. He decided to head back home
to Maryland to take his mind off of the
tragedy.
"As a young man, this was Joe's
first personal tragedy," his father said.
"I just thank God it was a bye week and
he was able to be around the family.
Things like that you don't get over
it. You learn to live with it."
Haden's family didn't realize just
how dose he and Slonina were until he
returned home. But with the support of
his loved ones, Haden recovered.
Haden's mother, Zakiya, returned
to Gainesville with him and spent
about a week by his side. He had some-
thing else to help him keep his mind off
of Slonina's death: football.
Haden played the next week against
Kentucky and was satisfied with his
performance. In fact, in the weeks since
the accident, Haden has played some of
his best games for the Gators.
"It's therapeutic for him," Haden's
father said. "He said the hard part was
when he goes back to his dorm at night
the quiet moments."
But since then, Haden said he is no
longer haunted by that tragic night. He
said he knows Slonina is in a better
place.
He now uses his fond and loving
memories of her as inspiration.
"If anything, it made me work hard-
er," Haden said. "We never try to settle
anymore. We just try to do our best at
whatever we do. ... Tell everyone you
love that you love them. Don't try to
have any grudges. Just try to live life
good, becausV that's the way Ashley
did it."

S0 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 SPECIAL REPORT Machen nets highest pay By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org There's a powerful man roaming campus. He's given thousands of dollars each year for the upkeep of his Audi. He makes more money than the governor. The Chronicle of Higher Education recently released the salaries of every university president in the nation. Guess who tops the list in Florida. UF President Bernie Machen's base salary is $411,037, according to the Chronicle's report. On top of that, he gets a $7,888 allowance for his car, $22,924 for retirement pay, a $75,000 annual bonus and a $210,000 retention bonus. All together, he gets $726,849. That's about $25,000 more than Florida State University President T.K. Wetherell and $593,917 more than Gov. Charlie Crist, who makes $132,932 a year. "It's a lot of money, you know?" Machen said after a meeting of UF's Faculty Senate on Thursday afternoon. "I feel, in some ways, lucky." "It's a lot of money, you know? I feel, in some ways, lucky." Bernie Machen UF president Machen flipped through the Chronicle's report, grinning and pointing when he found the page listing him as the sixth-highest-paid leader of public universities nationwide. David P. Roselle, president of the University of Delaware makes the most -$874,687 a year. "Are university presidents worth that kind of money?" Machen asked with a laugh. As for how it feels to make more than the governor, Machen just smiled. "You're going to have to ask him how he feels," he said. Each year, Machen gets a raise of about 2 to 3 percent, the same raise the rest of UF's faculty and administrators receive, said Dianna Morgan, chairwoman of UF's Board of Trustees. The board serves as the university's highest governing body.

UF bucks trend in law-school apps Levin is seeing more interest By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org While law schools nationwide are experiencing a decline in applications this year, the number of applications to UF's College of Law is on the rise. In an annual Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions nationwide survey of 190 law school admissions officers, half reported a decline in applications in the past two years. Robert Jerry, dean of UF's Levin College of Law, said UF has not been affected by this trend in the last two years. He said in 2006, the number of applications rose 10 percent, about 3,000 applications. "It's fair to say that our law school is increasingly a popular first-choice destination," Jerry said. Jerry said he expects the number of "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" applications to UF law school to continue to rise. "People who take a dose look at the university and especially those taking a look at the law school realize we've got some pretty good things going on here," he said. Glen Stohr, assistant director of pre-law programs for Kaplan, said at a school like UF there would always U F be fierce competition cadem c regardless of national numbers. Stohr said 79 percent of the admissions officers surveyed said the nationwide decline in applications hasn't made the admissions process less competitive, adding the trend implies the quality of applicants is getting stronger. "While it's a good time to apply with a smaller cohort, you've really got to make sure the application is top-notch," Stohr said. M Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales had a few special requests for his UF speaking engagement next week. See story, pg. 5, and check www.alligator.org for additional information. He said the decline wouldn't continue for long and is part of a cycle. In the past 10 or 15 years, there has been a steady increase in applications. It's still enough of a decline for law school hopefuls to take advantage of, he said. "What that means for students is that this is a really, really good time to apply," Stohr said. Wendy Margolis, Law School Admission Council director of communications, said she doesn't think it's a significant decline. Margolis said the number of applicants has declined, but the Law School Admission Council has increased registrations for the law school admission test, known as the LSAT. Stohr said those applying to law school should also be aware of changes that were made to the LSAT in June, but not to be afraid. -"Students shouldn't fear it, but respect that it's there and be sure to prepare in a way that you will be ready for it," Stohr said.

Meyer registers voters on campus By LYNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Staff Writer lsewis@alligator.org Bobbing his head to Led Zeppelin tunes, Andrew Meyer wasn't attracting too much attention Thuisday afternoon. As he manned a table on the Reitz Union Colonnade, Meyer blared music from a portable stereo and kept close watch over a stack of voter-registration forms. Meanwhile, dozens of students shuffled by without even giving him a second glance. Call this the new normal for Meyer, the UF telecommunication senior famous for being Tasered. After spending about two months at the center of a media maelstrom, Meyer says he's trying to downplay his status and promote more important issues -namely, voter registration and Ron Paul. To achieve his goals, he's launched a mini voter-registration drive on UF's campus. Meyer has spent five days signing up new voters without the aid of Chomp the Vote, Student Government's registration drive. (The group did give him some free pens, though.) Eyeing passers-by from his registration station On on the colonnade, Meyer said he helped about Campus 100 people sign up to vote during the first three days of his effort. But he stressed that he's not trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame. Instead, he said, he and a friend were looking for ways to effect change. "The apathy needs to stop," Meyer said. So, armed with blank registration forms, he's planted himself on the colonnade to chat up voter issues to just about anyone who approaches him. He's also been promoting Paul, his presidential candidate of choice. Mainstream media outlets have ignored the GOP Texas congressman's message for too long, Meyer said. "They don't want to put him on the cover of The New York Times," he said. So this is a day in the new life of Meyer: chitchatting with students about political activism as he plays Zeppelin and Rage Against the Machine on his portable stereo. Of course, fame doesn't always fade quickly. Although many passers-by steered cleat of the registration table, Meyer admitted he'd been recognized "a couple times."

[Mt wireless FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 3 E-cards spread holiday cheer at UF By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Although UF's cuddly-as-a-cactus, charming-as-aneel budget woes threaten to rob students of teachers and advisers, UF administrators just aren't ready to give up seasonal cheer. This year, UF's holiday cards are coming without ribbons. They're coming without tags. They're coming without packages, boxes or bags. Instead, UF President Bernie Machen has encouraged UF's faculty members to switch to electronic greeting cards to save trees and money, he wrote in a memo to UF's deans, directors and department chairs. Each year, 2.65 billion holiday cards are sold nationwide, Machen wrote in the memo. "That's enough to fill Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and Florida Field to the brim!" he wrote. After a meeting of UF's Faculty Senate on Thursday afternoon, Machen said he didn't know how many cards his office sends out every year. "E-mail is not the same as a personal card." Bernie Machen UF president By motioning with his hand, he estimated the stack towers up to his shoulder. Machen's office sends cards to financial donors, legislators and all the other state universities. "Why do we do it? Because of tradition," he said. "I inherited a Christmas list." When UF's Office of Sustainability brought up the idea of e-mailed greeting cards, Machen said he was skeptical whether it would be well-received. When he asked around, he said no one objected. He said his main concern was that the e-mailed cards would seem unfriendly. "E-mail is not the same as a personal card," he said. "It's not even the same as a letter." In his memo, Machen included an example of one of the brightly colored, nondenominational cards available on UF's Web site. "Of course, you can create your own design, if you prefer," he wrote. On Thursday, Machen chuckled at the thought of choosing the card he'll send out. "My wife picks them," he said, adding that she usually picks two or three cards of the 13 offered, and they ALBERT@ Q@RZAkLEs MONDAY November 19th, 8:00 p.m. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts Doors open at 7:15 p.m. Event is FREE and Open to the Public Advanced tickets can be picked up for FREE at the University and Phillips Center Box Office P Pts Peaceful Paths DOMESI11C ABUSL NEI WORK Items needed; Clothing+ Furniture -Old Cell PhonesHousehold Items' Toiletries-* School Supplies-and More.

UF's Alumni Association also sends holiday cards to the association's 50,000 members each year, Brazda said. This year, the association will only send out electronic cards to the 30,000 members with available e-mail addresses, he said. He said he didn't know how much money the association would save, but between printing and postal costs, it's a "considerable amount." The 20,000 members without e-mail addresses won't get anything in their virtual stockings. -Still, the budget hasn't stolen Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any other holiday, for that matter.

4, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 Temperatures may fall below freezing this weekend N IT MAY BE 31 DEGREES TONIGHT. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer Temperatures are expected to fall to or below freezing late tonight into early Saturday morning. PhilPeterson, a forecaster at theJacksonville National Weather Service Forecast Office, said the office is projecting the temperature to be 31 degrees late tonight to early Saturday. That is one degree below freezing, and a freeze watch is in effect for the Gainesville area, Peterson said. Danny Hinson, Alachua County Emergency Management planner, said Gainesville is in the southern area of the freeze watch. It's mainly for southern Georgia and the northeast inland part of Florida, Local Hinson said. News People should cover up any fragile plants that cannot take a light freeze, such as tropical plants, Peterson said. They should also make sure their heaters are working correctly, he said. Hinson said to make sure the elderly are protected from colder weather. If people live in mobile homes or older homes that might have exposed pipes, they need to make sure water runs through the entire system so the pipes don't freeze, Hinson said. AROUND UF Radio service cuts programs, upsetting some listeners By KORI FREDERICK Alligator Writer Carol Massey wakes up every Thursday and waits to hear the grocery ads read over the radio. The Gainesville resident, who is blind, depends on the program to know where she can go to save money. She's used the Radio ReadingService, whIch has been provided by UF's Classic 89, since its inception in 1992. .She has relied on the service for activities such as listening to a program called "Window Shopping," which reads ads from various stores in town. The reading service still reads the grocery ads, usually twice on Thursdays, but Massey said it really "screws up her week" if they aren't read, which happened a few weeks ago. "This is a really valuable service for me," said Massey. "I'm blind, so I can't get in the car and go look myself." Massey and several others said they have noticed a decline in services provided by the Radio Reading Service, which has a hstening audience of 650, she said. Listeners are sent special receivers that pick up the low-frequency signal the service is broadcast over. As part of the service, volunteers read newspapers, grocery ads, magazines and books to the listeners. Massey said many' programs, such as "Window Shopping," have been canceled. Weekend service has also been canceled. "I would like to see more local service," Massey said. "I would like to see' some of those old programs back on the air." However, Jean DeFlumer, station manager, said "Window Shopping" and weekend service were cut because there weren't enough volunteers. DeFlumer also said the station likes to use the Minnesota reading service when it finishes with local programming. Massey said the service is relying too much on broadcasts from a Minnesota reading service, instead of having local programming. One of the most recent issues bothering listeners is the cancellation of "Focus," a local program. "Focus" brought on health professionals, doctors, nurses and people from agencies like the Veteran's Affairs and Hospice. The program, a live broadcast, was ended last month because the host, Jo DeNicola, didn't want to record her show a week in advance. DeNicola said it helped people respond to problems in their lives in a positive manner. She brought in guests who helped the listeners know what was going on in their community DeNicola said this was the only live local programming offered to them. She said her program was canceled because she went in to do her show one day and discovered the station had been off the air. DeNicola said she had to find an engineer to help her, and later got her show started with the engineer's help. After DeNicola complained about the incident, DeFlumer told her she would be required to record her show a week in advance and she could only have two guests per month. "She wanted to change the format of the entire show," DeNicola said. "I didn't want her to do that, so I quit." DeFlumer said it is common practice for shows to be recorded a week in advance. She said it did not pull the show off the air. "There is a certain group of people who are malcontent," DeFlumer said. "Most of our listeners are very positive except this one group of people. We expected a backlash from this show going off the air." Joan Miles, a listener since 1993, said she has not received a schedule since DeFlumer took over in 1999. Many long-time listeners have complained about not knowing the schedule. Both Miles and Massey said they haven't known the schedule for several years. DeFlumer said programs are available and are sent out when they send out the receivers. "Many people haven't gotten updated programming because they've had their receivers for years," DeFlumer explained. Many listeners are upset about the lack of a representative voice. When the service began, there was an advisory board of listeners, volunteers and workers who gave feedback and comments about the service, Massey said. This board was extinguished in 2000 by Henry Pensis, station manager. He said the program didn't need a board because it had grown so much. Many long-time volunteers quit helping at the station because they couldn't get in contact with DeFlumer, said Norman Jensen, a volunteer for five years. Jensen said he quit because he could never get in touch with DeFlumer. "A lot of people depend on this service," Jensen said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 5 ON CAMPUS Gonzales' requests turned down By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will speak at UF on Monday, but his speech will not go exactly as he wanted. Gonzales, who resigned from his White House position in August after a controversial tenure, made several requests that were refused by Accent, Student Government's speakers bureau. He requested that his representatives choose which members of the press cover the event and that they not use television cameras and recording devices during his speech, his contract stated. Gonzales also asked Accent not to disclose the amount he was paid for his speech -$40,000, the contract stated. Steven Blank, Accent chairman, said the requests were denied because they violated university polices and possibly state statutes, but he didn't know the exact rules broken. Beth Waltrip, director of student activities and manager of Accent's legal and contractual issues, could not be reached by press time. Accent's refusal of the requests did not cause any negotiating problems, Blank said. The speakers bureau did grant Gonzales the right to control the question-andanswer session after his speech. Attendees must write questions on index cards, which will be collected and asked by a moderator. A faculty member from the Levin College of Law will probably moderate the speech, though no final decision has been made, Blank said. Gonzales isn't the first visitor to ask for special treatment, he said. Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor who famously documented his experiences in his autobiography, "Night," requested a similar question-and-answer process when he spoke in March 2006. "It doesn't impede students' ability to ask some hard-hitting questions, and hopefully he'll have some hard-hitting answers," Blank said. Gonzales also asked that the venue be adequately lit so he can see the audience and that his lectern be positioned so the audience can't see his notes. But most of the requests Gonzales made were more ordinary such as asking for a wireless microphone and a glass of water on stage, the contract stated. Gonzales will appear at 7:15 p.m. at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. -Free tickets for students with Gator 1 Cards are still available today at the Phillips Center and the University Box Office.

It's time to put the sundresses and shorts in the back of the closet and break out the sweaters and scarves. It's time to put on a pot of chili and sip some hot cocoa. It's time to trade in the Corona Light for a dark, wintry ale. It's time to stop going to class and stay under the covers instead. But most of all, it's time to read this week's frost-covered edition of. Darts & Laurels First up, we send a this-just-sends-a-chill-down-ourspines DART to former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who will be speaking at UF next week. He wanted to limit the press at the speech, and he didn't want the amount he was being paid disclosed. He also didn't want video or audio recorders allowed at the speech. Hey, Alberto: This isn't a classified speech to the CIA. You'll be talking to a bunch of college students. We'vegotta ask, does he plan to say some things he doesn't want repeated? But we've got to give a that-warms-us-right-backup LAUREL to Accent and UF for saying no to Gonzales' demands. Next, we send a that-cold-blast-of-air-may-be-from-anF-16-flying-over-your-head LAUREL to UF's Air Force ROTC program, which was ranked the No. 1 medium-sized unit in the country for the first time in the program's 65-year history. UF student-cadets lead the program and will serve the country. With this news, we know they'll do it well. Also in UF and high-rankings news, we give a whoneeds-a-Florida-winter-when-you-could-experienceone-in-England-Mexico-or-China LAUREL to the UF International Center. UF ranks 17th in the nation for international-student attendance, and it also ranks high in shortterm study-abroad participation. It's great to be a global Gator, isn't it? However, only about 5 percent of UF students who want to study abroad actually do. Really, when else will you be able to travel to almost any country in the world and call it "school"? Once you have a job, traveling will probably be reserved for vacation. The time is now. Get to the International Center -it's in the Hub, right next to Starbucks, so you can get a steaming hot cappuccino while you're there. And you won't even have to trudge through the snow, uphill both ways like your parents did, to get there. Speaking of great places to study abroad, how about Sweden? It's the land of H&M, umlauts, Greta Garbo and the Celsius temperature scale. What could we be forgetting? Oh, yes. Here's a Momma-Mia-that's-a-spicy-Swedishmeatball LAUREL for IKEA, the Swedish furniture design company, which has taken Florida by storm, opening two stores in two months. The Orlando location opened Thursday morning, and several IF students ventured there in search of Vreta, Isig, BestA Tofta and Lakt. IKEA is a college student's dream furniture because of its modern design and low prices. It's like the SuperTarget of home design, with all the imported Swedish food you could ever want. Pickled herring, anyone? We hear it's a great breakfast on a chilly winter morning. Someone at UF doesn't need to save money by buying IKEA furniture, and for that we have a how-about-buying-a-sweater-for-every-UF-student DART to UF President Bernie Machen, who earns a startling $726,849 a year, including benefits. That's almost five and a half times what Gov. Charlie Crist earns. Assuming Bernie worked 40 hours a week (but we know he must work more), he's earning $350 an hour. Damn. Meanwhile, UF is facing huge budget cuts. Maybe Bernie's salary could be put to better use?

Why doesn't Alberto Gonzalez want YOU to see his notes? 2?cre ,-? C'e///V 0"e eZs' Column Get your mind off of y is everyone on a diet all of a sudden? Maybe I'm imagining things, but it appears there has been a recent outburst of weightloss frenzy among college students in the weeks before Thanksgiving. It could be fears of going home and seeing friends for the first time in several months have prompted students to panic about weight. Or perhaps the coming holiday season is scaring students into thinking if they don't lose weight now, they will be twice as heavy once holiday feasting has ceased. But whatever the reason, self-deprecating rants about unwanted body fat and drastic goals to lose 15 pounds by Christmas seem to be on a lot of people's agendas -and it's starting to piss me off. -I say this mainly because lately, I have been assigned the position of Designated Moderator of my friends' daily Flab Competitions. "Look! Look at my stomach. I have a muffin-top now," one of my skinny friends complained as she lifted her shirt in disgust, to which another of my fit friends replied, "Oh, you think that's bad? Look at my legs. You'd think I'd belong in a forest with these tree-trunks." It drives me nuts because there is no reason for any of my friends to be upset about their bodies. I know my friends aren't the only people who feel insecure about their weight but unfortunately, most of us are. Preoccupation with weight is commonplace in college. We are bombarded with warnings of weight gain from the beginning. -I remember thinking, "Oh man, I don't want to gain the Freshman 15," as I waved goodbye to my family on my first day of college. holiday weight gain But really, it's OK if you've put on a few pounds in college. It's not the end of the world. What's not OK is the way college students complain about their bodies. Colleen Shea When will people finally stop stressing over the little flab around letters@alligator.org their arms? When will women finally stop trying to win Flab Competitions? Instead of getting frenzied about losing a pants size before fall semester ends, maybe what we should do is start feeling good about the way we look -as we look now. My mom gives pretty good advice. When I had a pity party last year about the way I looked, she told me, "Always be thankful for what you have. I used to look in the mirror and hate myself. Now I look back at old photos and think, 'Damn! I was a sexpot!"' So let's try to feel good about ourselves and enjoy our young bodies. So what if you put on a few pounds this semester -it happens. So what if your belly hangs over your pants a little bit -it's not going to kill you. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not-saying it's OK to eat junk food and sit around all day. I'm just saying that extreme diet and exercise habits aren't OK, especially around this time of year, when people should be enjoying time with friends and family. Plus, who honestly wants to think about 'calories on Thanksgiving? Wear your elastic pants and eat an extra slice of pumpkin pie. Love your body. Colleen Shea is a sophomore majoring in journalism.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Meyer doesn't deserve our attention In response to Thursday's guest column, I challenge Andrew Meyer to keep his mouth shut for once. He is a fluke and just another misguided miscreant begging for attention who somehow cluelessly stumbled into an undeserved moment of celebrity. His column contained nothing new or inspiring, and his attempt at flair made it all the more annoying. What makes people think they should listen to him? What wisdom could we expect to come from him? The Andrew Meyer has done enough damage to U. Michael Bosworth UFgraduate student Meyer's call for voters filled with irony I can only hope Andrew Meyer's guest column was published with ironic intent. The guy who helped perpetuate the idea that political protesters are shrill, self-important fools wonders why more students aren't involved? The guy who, through his selfish, attention-whoring antics, has probably made it more difficult for Accent to convince speakers to come to UF is now challenging Accent to bring better guests? The guy who has now twice advanced the stereotype that all college students are apathetic Facebook junkies is wondering why that stereotype is alive and well? Yes, we should be more politically active than we are. But hearing Meyer extol the virtues of civic responsibility is like hearing Pat Robertson preach about the Bible's message of tolerance and love. Someone please disabuse Meyer of the notion that he's in any position to speak for his generation, let alone challenge it to do anything. Taylor Clarke 2EG Em.MM Don't perpetuate stereotypes, Alligator I found myself a little surprised after reading "Overheard in Gainesville" in Thursday's Avenue section. The final quote, by a "sorostitute," would have little apparent humor apart from the girl presumably being in a sorority. Some people might find it funny, but why not throw in hilarious quotes about other people? I have one for you: Black guy: "But seriously, I really like fried chicken now." I'm obviously exaggerating, but both quotes are loaded with stereotypes too easily perpetuated by this kind of lax cultural dialogue. The Alligator should be more conscious of what it prints. I feel the Alligator takes an unnecessary anti-Greek stance far too often. I am in a fraternity, and the stereotypes are true only to the extent that race and gender stereotypes are also true, though racist and sexist articles are rarely printed. Sean Hipworth 4LS Online SG voting should be an option During the fall Student Government election, UF students again resoundingly expressed the opinion that the voting system at UF needs an overhaul. When 14 percent of the electorate trudges through the rain to the polls, it is time for a change. Students For Online Voting offers UF that change. Instead of having to find a polling station and deal with the bureaucratic gridlock of the current system, students would be able to roll out of bed and vote on their computers. Increased participation could make SG more likely to respond to the needs of the student body and the administration more likely to listen to SG. It is all too easy for the administration to get its way when fewer than 7,000 students make their voices heard at the polls. Online voting would offer an innovative way to make UF more democratic. We already take classes, register and pay fees online. Why shouldn't we vote there, too?

By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer Gainesville was added to a list of 22 cities that restrict providing meals to the homeless in a November homeless advocacy report. In a conference call Thursday morning, the National Coalition for the Homeless and National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty discussed the increase of cities punishing those-who feed homeless people. Gainesville city ordinances make sharing food in front of City Hall illegal and require food distribution centers for the homeless to obtain a permit, the report stated. Michael Stoops, executive director of the coalition, said it named Gainesville the fifthmeanest city in the country toward the homeless in 2004. "Gainesville is kind of self-nominating themselves to be on the mean city list," he said. Concems were also raised because the future Gainesville one-stop homeless center will be located 33 blocks north of Local the downtown area, the report News stated. City spokesman Bob Woods said the City Hall ordinance was created in 2003 by the city manager. The city has allowed for some flexibility, Woods said. However, Stoops said the homeless cannot get three hot meals seven days a week in Gainesville. "I think there's an effort in Gainesville and elsewhere to drive the visible homeless out from the downtown area," Stoops said. Woods said the center, which would be located on 3335 N. Main Terrace, would provide various services in addition to meals. "We think we can do better, and the citizens in our community deserve better," Woods said. 1643 NW 1st Ave 376-2233 SOCCER Friday, November 16 Auburn vs. UCF @ 4:30 PM Florida vs. Miami @ 7 PM Sunday, November 18 Gam# e i vvinn er G ame 2 sinnte r @1 PM KECE=S Adults = $7 Children!Senior Citizens = $3 The first 200 UF students are free with ID. call 800*34GATOR All matches played at James G.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 9 Senate collects food for homeless E MONEY DONATIONS ARE BEING COLLECTED, TOO. By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@aligatororg Turkeys, cans of corn and green beans are what the Student Senate has been thinking about since Monday. Sen. Anita McNulty, who represents UF sophomores, said the Senate is collecting canned foods, nonperishable food items and money donations for homeless shelters and families. McNulty said she has been collecting contributions from student senators and anyone involved in Student Government since Monday. She said all donations will be given to Bread of the Mighty Food Bank, a part of America's Second Harvest, which is the largest charitable hunger-relief organization in the United States. She said the Senate has a service project each semester, but this is the first year it has sponsored a Thanksgiving food drive. About 40 or 50 cans of food and at least $75 in Student donations have Gov8rsiMent already been collected for the drive, she said. McNulty said she expects to have about 200 cans of food and $100 to donate by Tuesday, the last day of the drive. "I think that we're all so blessed in certain ways to have homes, and there's a lot of people less fortunate," McNulty said. "It's just a great way to give back to the community." Interest in languages rising By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org While numbers of UF international students and study-abroad participants are on the upswing, many students are also opting to learn foreign languages from the comfort of Gainesville. Enrollment in UF's language courses is on the rise,. following national trends of booming Spanish classes and fast-growing interest in learning Arabic and Chinese, said Dennis Jett, director of UF's International Center. He said the growing interest in Arabic began after the Sept. 11 attacks. Students want to be able to understand the changing world they live in, he said. Enrollment in Arabic classes nationwide has more than doubled from 2002 to 2006, according to the latest findings from the Modern Language Association of America. "I th ink it's one of the biggest gifts." Janie Fouke UF provost The findings state that Arabic has, for the first time, jumped into the top-10 list of the most popular languages. "Almost all the language courses have benefited somewhat in recent years as people understand the importance of having an international experience," Jett said. Over time, some courses, such as French and German, may have had reduced enrollment, Jett said, but he's still pleased with students' overall international interest. "I wish I'd done it when I was young," UF Provost Janie Fouke said about learning a foreign language. "I think it's one of the biggest gifts." Fouke said she thinks too many students are only focused on taking the classes they need to graduate and get a job right away. Instead, they should try to learn a new language and become a "multi-dimensional" person, she said. Many UF colleges don't even have foreign language requirements, she said. But she said she didn't think those requirements would change anytime soon. If students want to take language classes, they're able to, Fouke added.

10, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 Board suggests punishments By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@aIligator.org The Greek Judicial Board has recommended multiple punishments for a UF fraternity following an Aug. 30 party at its house where members served alcohol to minors. At a meeting Tuesday, the board recommended UF's chapter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity be placed on conduct probation through fall 2008, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. In addition, the board suggested that the fraternity, known as Phi Deltbe prohibited from recruitment during spring 2008. The fraternity will also be barred from recruitment through fall 2008 unless it meets certain requirements. The sanctions include performing community (Greek service, not holding socials through summer 2008 -Life and only holding dry socials during fall 2008. Phi Delt is allowed to participate in intramurals and philanthropic events. Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students, has the final say on the suggestions. If he approves them, Phi Delt can appeal the decision to Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs. Charles Reap / Alligator Staff The board had already warned the fraternity about a simiCars drive by the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity house on Southwest 13th Street on Thursday night. The fraternity may lar incident, Orlando said. be punished for a party thrown in August. Matt Helgeson, Phi Delt president, said the fraternity has offered to work with UF in whatever way possible. UF students become mentors at elementary school E VOLUNTEERS DEDICATE 30 MINUTES TO KIDS EACH WEEK. By JACKIE HORSTMANN Alligator Contributing Writer Children at Metcalfe Elementary School giggled with excitement Wednesday when a group of UF students stepped into their cafeteria. Since October, UF students have been paired up with students from Metcalfe as part of Project MASCOT, Mentoring Alliance: Students and Communities Outreaching Together. The project is a one-year, nonprofit program for UF student volunteers interested in helping and motivating elementary-school children in the Gainesville area, according to its Web site. Every week, the volunteers dedicate 30 minutes to mentor children who are "at risk," and as of Monday, every thirdand fourthgrade student at Metcalfe has a mentor, said Kelley Bonds Kostamo, partnership specialist for Alachua County School Volunteer Program. "I'm surprised college students would be willing to put in their time and miss getting sleep to mentor these kids," said Nathaniel Jones, student specialist at Metcalfe. At Metcalfe, about 75 percent of the students receive free lunches, Jones said. He said the majority of these children come from lowincome households. I tip my hat off to students who come and mentor." Nathaniel Jones student specialist at Metcalfe The children at Metcalfe have problems identifying good role models, he said. Project MASCOT will be able to keep the children interested in not only their schoolwork but also in developing hopes and dreams for their future, Jones said. "I tip my hat off to students who come and mentor," he said. -While some UF students are required to participate in community service, others take the initiative because they want to make a bigger difference in Gainesville. Andrew Schneider, a 20-year-old UF biology major, said he decided to participate in Project MASCOT because he thought it would be fun and rewarding to help at-risk children. Schneider and his student, George, meet every Wednesday at noon to hang out, play sports and just talk about life. "He smIles every time I visit him," Schneider said as he gave George a high-five.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 11 Faculty Senate moves closer to altering honor court 0 THE COURT MAY NOT HEAR DISHONESTY CASES.By DEVIN CULCLASURE, Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org UF's Student Honor Court is one step closer to losing its ability to hear academic dishonesty cases, which is its primary responsibility. UF's Faculty Senate passed a resolution Thursday urging Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs, to cut the number of ways UF handles student academic dishonesty cases. Generally, students charged with academic dishonesty can choose to have their cases heard by the Student Conduct Committee, which comprises students and faculty, or by the Student Honor Court, where faculty only participate as witnesses. Other venues for hearing cases include an administrative hearing, a resolution meeting with faculty and students, or student conduct conuittees at the Health Science Center and the Levin College of Law. The Senate suggested removing the honor court and administrative hearings because they did not have adequate faculty and student representation, respectively. Gene Zdziarski, dean of students and co-chair of the Senate committee that made the suggestions, said another concern was the low number of cases heard by the honor court. In the last six years, the court handled 22 of 1,095 academic dishonesty cases at U, Zdziarski said. Faculty members and students said the court setting was inapiarri"on"" "m" '/" miiur UF President Bernie Machen makes a report to the Faculty Senate in the Reitz Union on Thursday afternoon. propriate for most of the cases, and it generally created hostility, he added. But some students expressed displeasure with the possible removal of the court. Fairuze Sofia, a third year UF law student and the court's chief defense counsel, said she thinks faculty members wanted to remove the court because they felt-slighted by their lack of involvement. "The whole point of honor court is to give students a fair hearing," Sofia said. "Other processes might not help much if a teacher already thinks a student is guilty." In addition, Yooni Yi, Student Body President Ryan Moseley's chief of staff, and Vanessa Goodwin, Student Body vice president, presented Student Government's concems and suggestions. SG's recommendations, which will also be sent to Telles-Irvin, suggested reforms to the court instead of its removal. Possible changes included appointing faculty advisers to the student attorneys and having the Dean of Students Office review the cases. "We're not saying the Student Honor Court doesn't have problems, because it does," Goodwin said. "But it has been a part of us since 1914."

12, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 UF celebrates Gatorade history 0 A CEREMONY WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE THE O'CONNELL CENTER TODAY. By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Like a lime-green, sticky flagship, Gatorade led UF to research greatness. Now, after enjoying more than 40 years of electrolyte-laced hydration, UF is venerating the drink with a historical marker and a ceremony outside the O'Connell Center today at 1:30 p.m. The dedication will be the first in a series of threefoot-tall markers to honor UF's triumphs in research, service and education, states a memo from UF's History Advisory Council to UF's deans, directors and department chairs. About 200 people were invited to the event, including Gatorade's original researchers. The historical marker program is sponsored by the UF Alumni Association, and the first marker cost $1,460, said Carl Van Ness, UF's historian. "When it came time to pick the first one, Gatorade was easy," Van Ness said. "It combines everything-innovation, research and, of course, the sports program." Sweet roots In 1965, four researchers in UF's College of Medicine created a drink to replenish fluids, electrolytes and carbohydrates lost during exercise or sports. Van Ness said the UF football team first tested the drink during practice. On The first time players guzzled it during CampuS a game was when UF played then-fifthranked Louisiana State University, he said. "We were heavy underdogs, but we ended up beating them," he said. "We outlasted them." Van Ness said LSU team members and spectators were amazed by the amount of energy the Gators team sustained throughout the game. Rewards and concerns The rest is Gatorade history, and UF still reaps the monetary benefits of sweet, liquid success. Over the last five years, UF received about $12.58 million in royalties from Gatorade sales, wrote Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, in an e-mail. But that piece of the pie could crumble if national health regulations call for public schools to remove the sports drink from their cafeterias. Sen. Tom Harkin, a Democrat who represents Iowa, recently introduced a bill that would set new nutritional standards in public schools, according to a report from The Washington Post. Public health advocates are pushing to ban sports drinks and sweetened waters, citing high sugar, sodium and calories as nutritional downfalls. Janis Mena, GatorWell Health Promotion Services nutritionist, said removing Gatorade from school cafeterias could help curb obesity at a young age. Gatorade wasn't created for children, Mena said. Even when used during exercise, it should be diluted and consumed in small amounts. Orlando said UF officials would not comment about whether stopping sales of the drink at elementary or high schools could severely hurt UF's revenue but said UF would certainly not remove Gatorade from campus. Making history UF hopes to erect three to four historical markers on campus each year, Van Ness said. The next two will commemorate UF's Everglades research and the UF Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature. He said the idea for the marker program came from a similar one at Penn State University. Like Penn State, UF will eventually offer walking tours from marker to marker around campus to showcase UF's historical contributions, he said. He said he couldn't estimate how many posts might someday dot UF's campus because the number will continually grow. "As long as we keep making history, we'll continue to put in historical markers," Van Ness said.

Brian Kasten, the Fly-Fishing Club president, said fly-fishing is the old-fashioned way to fish. He started the dub because he didn't want to make the long trips for fishing by himself. The club has 27 active members. Kasten said he has been fishing since he was 10 years old and taught himself how to cast. Now he's teaching novice fishermen the special casting style of fly-fishing over on the fields by Hull Road on UF's campus. "It's more difficult so it's more rewarding when you catch something," said Kasten, a UF biology junior. One of the main differences between fly-fishing and regular fishing is the equipment, he said. For fly-fishing rods, the fishing line is thick and bright green instead of a clear. "We give the fish every single advantage," he said. Fly-fishermen also use waders -special pants used when they stand in the water -and waterproof boots. He said living in Florida is a barrier for practicing the sport he loves. So the group travels to places like North Carolina and Georgia. Kasten and the six other students will spend the weekend in a riverside cabin owned by Davidson River Outfitters. The cabin is about 20 miles from any grocery store, he said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 13 Small changes can help reduce water consumption N CHANGING SPRINKLER SCHEDULES CAN HELP. By STEVEN WEINER Alligator Writer UF researchers have found that going green to protect the water supply doesn't mean sacrificing a green lawn. Two recent studies from UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences reveal that simple changes to lawn-watering practices can drastically reduce water use. Researchers found that homeowners could save a significant amount of water and money by changing automated sprinkler schedules and using soil moisture-sensor technology. The sensor can monitor how much moisture is in the grass' roots and shut off the lawn's irrigation system accordingly. Melissa Baum Haley, research coordinator and a graduate student in the department of agricultural and biological engineering, worked with seven other researchers on the studies, which were led by Michael Dukes, associate professor of agricultural and biological engineering. For the first study, the research team worked with 27 Florida homeowners to determine the best settings for automated in-ground sprinkler systems. The team concluded that homeowners could cut monthly water usage by 30 percent by changing their sprinkler settings seasonally. The average amount of water saved for the homes in the study was 13,000 gallons per month. These changes would be easy to implement, Haley said. The study also found that homeowners who used short-range sprinklers on ornamental plants along with the adjusted watering schedule cut water usage in half. In its second study, the team asked if soil-moisture sensors could also be used to control the amount of water a lawn receives. A soil-moisture sensor is a small device placed in the dirt beneath the root bed of the grass. By testing a variety of moisture sensors on the market, the rnoto Uouresy or iviicnaej UUKeS Mary Shedd, a graduate student in the department of agricultural and biological engineering, and Bernard Cardenas-Lailhacar, the research coordinator, install a soil-moisture sensor. team found that it conserved an average of 69 to 92 percent of water. In both studies, the lawns undergoing the experiments remained healthy and green, indicating that less water did not decrease plant health. These studies also indicate that most people are significantly overwatering their lawns. Haley compared the grass root zone, where grass absorbs water, to a gas tank. Although people may think more water will equate to healthier grass, like a gas tank, the root zone can only hold so much. "By irrigating for one or two or three hours, you're not going to have more water stored in that root zone," she said. Haley said 45 minutes is more than enough time to water any one area. As Florida continues to grow at breakneck speed, the need for water conservation will increase, she said. As the state's population increases, construction of family housing increases. These houses will most likely come with automated sprinkler systems. If every house with these automated systems adopted the seasonal scheduling changes, enormous amounts of water would be saved, Haley said. She encouraged homeowners to look into making these changes and being more responsible about water conservation. Irrigation Revelation: UF researchers have found that homeowners can save money by saving water. Here's a breakdown of the research by the numbers. 3 0% amount seasonal water usage will be cut by resetting automated sprinlder systems 6 9-92% amount of water usage cut by utilizing soil moisture sensors 20% amount of water saved by utilizing a drip irrigation system with ornamental plants 1 3.0 0 0 amount of gallons of water per month saved by homeowners who changed their 45 minutes the maximum time any area of grass should be watered sprinlder system schedule seasonally Mikala Kuchera / Alligator Staff A special ltfraviolat -Ur. makes it psible t see the underlying ski. a S.t.e done by the tt=.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 15 SFCC student organizes campus self-defense panel 0 STEPS FORVICTIM SUPPORT WERE DISCUSSED. By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgaIlagher@alligator.org When walking alone at night, stick to well-lit areas. Ieep your hands empty. Be aware of your surroundings. But above all, don't talk on your cell phone, Cpl. Jaime Kiirnick of the Gainesville Police Department said at the Safety 101 Panel Discussion at SFCC on Thursday night. The panel also included speakers on sexual abuse, domestic abuse, UF resources for students and self-defense. The panel was put on by Dianna Ordway, a SFCC student, as an assignment for the Community Advocates Program, a seven-week course that bridges students to the community. Her assignment was to do a safety ,or crime prevention program, she said. Though she's been planning it for weeks, recent assaults in Gainesville have made topics of rape, self-defense and victims' services appropriate, she said. The program had special meaning to Ordway, who said she was sexually abused as a child. She said she wanted others to know about resources that she did not. Kurnick said at the panel that people should not hesitate to call police when they see something suspicious. "We want to Santa Fe Community College be bothered. We want to know what's happening. We want people to be safe," she said. Tanja van der Veen, a victim's advocate with UF, brought up safety resources offered by the university, such as the Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol van service and the blue-light poles on campus. Women can also participate in a free three-day Rape Aggression Defense course, she said, offered once a month through the University Police Department. Denise Guerin, a self-defense instructor at SFCC, also suggested a self-defense course being offered at Unified Training Center. Laura Kalt of the Alachua County Rape Crisis Center, suggested what to do in case a crime does occur. -"First and foremost is to believe that person," she said. Victims also need to know the crime is not their fault, talk to a professional and see a doctor, she said. The first 48 hours to 72 hours after the crime are the most crucial for getting evidence, she said, when many victims are still unsure of whether to report the crime. In Alachua County, she said, victims can now get a forensic exam immediately and take 90 days to decide whether to submit any evidence. Policies have also changed in regards to domestic violence, GPD Detective Bruce Ferris said. "There was a time when an officer would show up and there'd be a woman beaten up, and he'd say, 'Johnny, quit drinking and go stay at Bubba's house tonight,"' he said. Now, GPD has a Domestic Violence Unit, which Ferris works with, dealing only with domestic abuse. "Nobody has the right to hurt anybody else," he said.

However, Machen said this year, he's making the same amount he made last year. According to state law, only $225,000 of Machen's salary can come from state-appropriated funding, Morgan said. "It's all based on a market analysis to ensure we're paying our president fairly." Dianna Morgan chairwoman of UF's Board of Trustees The rest is funded by UF's athletic program and the UF Foundation, the institution that handles donations to UF, she said. "When you think about the fact that UF is a $4.3 billion enterprise rivaling some of the largest companies in the nation, it's a very complex institution," Morgan said. Given UF's wide scope of educational programs, as well as a major health science program and hospital, she said Machen's compensation is appropriate. The board determined his salary by researching similar institutions in the nation and in the state, Morgan said. She said parts of his salary are only paid if he meets certain goals, which are laid out by the board. Most of Machen's goals this year were focused on cutting universitywide costs and reducing the budget. UF has to cut $34 million from its budget because of a recent tax-revenue shortfall. His contract covers five years with a provision to extend it for an additional three, Morgan said. Machen assumed his position at UF in January 2004. Given UF's recent budget woes, Morgan said it's even more important to have a competent president. She added that UF would not consider lowering Machen's salary to compensate for budget shortfalls. "When times are tough, as they are, I think it's more important that you have great leadership," Morgan said. "That's when you need the very best." 44 Amy Ustjanowsk/ Aligator In The Driver's Seat Karen Driscoll, a UF occupational therapy graduate student, checks how Nancy Sever s car "fits" her Thursday afternoon.

18, AtLIGATOR U FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 Rutgers to test undefeated UF Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator UF forward Chandler Parsons rebounds during UF's 105-51 victory over North Carolina Central on Wednesday at the O'Connell Center. By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org For one Gators player, Saturday's matchup against Rutgers is turning into a family affair. As the 7 p.m. tipoff nears, UF freshman Chandler Parsons is fully aware that his grandfather will be in Gainesville, and in the wrong locker room. Parsons' grandfather, Don Parsons, played for Rutgers from 1946-1950 and was a sixth-round draft pick of the New York Knicks. "He'll definitely be there in the (Rutgers) locker room," Parsons said. "He was bothering me, but I'm not a New Jersey guy. I'm not about all that cold weather." Parsons said his grandfather tried to push him to go to Rutgers, but in the end the decision was a no-brainer. "Florida's the best place to be," Parsons said. "I know he played there, he did his thing there. But I'm a Gator, and I'm proud of it." When asked if his grandfather would use his relationship against him to help Rutgers prepare for the 6-foot-9 forward, Parsons said he hoped not. ."That would be dirty if he did, but I doubt it," he said. Parsons is coming off an impressive performance against North Carolina Central, where he led the Gators with 22 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out seven assists in 18 minutes. Parsons said Rutgers (3-0) poses the biggest challenge for the young Gators squad (3-0). "They're a great team," Parsons said. "The Big East is a great conference. .We'll be ready for Rutgers." UF coach Billy Donovan seconded the notion. "Certainly the most talented team we're playing up to this point is Rutgers," Donovan said. "That's going to be a heck of challenge for us on Saturday." As part of the Blue Ribbon Challenge, Rutgers and UF have both played the same opponents thus far. Although both are undefeated against the bunch, Rutgers barely edged Tennessee Tech 70-64 at home, whereas the Gators dominated the same Golden Eagles team 93-65. Rutgers is averaging only 74 points per game during the event, compared to the Gators' 91. 1 The Gators have impressed Donovan so far. After UF's 105-51 win against North Carolina Central, Donovan said that although the competition has been minimal, he's proud of the way his team has played. "I'm very happy with how we've shot the ball, and how we've passed the basketball So far. It's encouraging to see them play together." Billy Donovan UF men's basketball coach "I thought the last two games they had a reason to feel good about themselves," he said. "I think that if I was sitting up here telling you our team came out complacent, selfish and didn't play together, you know what, I would be upset. I would be saying there was youthfulness, but after this game I can say we've showed some maturity, which is good to see." The Gators are averaging almost 21 assists per contest so far, a trend Donovan thinks has been the key to their early season success. "I'm very happy with how we've shot the ball, and how we've passed the basketball so far," Donovan said. "It's encouraging to see them play together." After breaking a school record for consecutive wins at home against Tennessee Tech last Sunday, the Gators will aim for a new milestone in Saturday's contest. With a win, Donovan will have 300 career victories, 265 of which he amassed during his tenure at UF. Gators head to Nebraska for season's first road game BROOKS HOPES TO IMPROVE ON POOR SHOOTING PERFORMANCE. By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org The UF women's basketball team is going to find out this weekend if it can play as well on the road as it has at home. The Gators (2-0) travel to Nebraska for their first road game Saturday at 6:05 p.m. The Cornhuskers (2-0) are coming off an 80-59 victory against another Southeastern Conference team, Mississippi, which was projected to finish higher than UF in the conference's preseason polls. Players and coaches talked about the importance of staying focused while playing away from home. "You can't be distracted by sleeping in a hotel," UF coach Amanda Butler said. "You can't be distracted by travel and just things that are different from our day-today routine." Senior guard Depree Bowden hopes to help talk her team through the hostile environment. "There's going to be a lot of fans and everyone's going to be against us," she said. "We gotta keep together as a team and just try to be a family." After a scoreless 0-for-10 shooting night against Robert Morris on Monday, junior guard Sha Brooks put in some extra shooting time before each practice in an attempt to improve against Nebraska. Women's "I most certainly don't want to have another Basketball game like I did the other day," Brooks said. "I was getting good shots, they just wouldn't fall. You have bad games like that." The game poses yet another challenge in the post for the Gators. .Cornhuskers senior Danielle Page earned Big 12 Conference Player of the Week honors Monday after totaling 24 -points and averaging 8.5 rebounds in her first two games. The 6-foot-2 forward came off the bench against the Gators in the Cornhuskers' 8173 victory last season and scored 15 points and added seven rebounds in just 18 minutes. Meanwhile, junior forward Marshae Dotson comes off one of the better games of her career, racking up 25 points and 16 rebounds against Robert Morris. Butler looks to the team's experience against high-quality post players to help them through yet another frontcourt chalSEE WOMEN, PAGE 20 UFSOCCER Abdullah hits scoring stride in time for NCAA Tournament By KARL HYPPOLITE 1 Alligator Writer Finally, there's been an Ameera Abdullah sighting. After a quiet season offensively, it appears the preseason first-team All-Southeastern Conference player is regaining her 2Q06 form. Abdullah scored two goals in UF's 4-1 win over Georgia-in the SEC title game. .It was the first multiple-score game of the year for the junior, who finished the regular season with just two scores. The third-seeded Gators open the NCAA Tournament at 7 tonight against Miami, and Abdullah is expected to play a major role offensively. UF features three players who have scored at least seven goals this season. If Abdullah can recapture the offensive aggression she displayed in her sophomore season when she scored 11 goals, it would make the Gators Abdullah even tougher to defend. "On any given day, anyone can score," forward Ashlee Elliott said. "Shana (Hudson) scored, I've scored, Lauren Hyde's scored. Honestly, you can't scout this team, because we're all capable of scoring and we can score from anywhere on the field. "Ameera scoring is an awesome thing. I'm glad she got those goals because if she takes it into the NCAAs, she could be unstoppable." In a way, it seems Abdullah's season is just beginning. The Denver native injured her left peroneal tendon in the third match of the season against South Florida. The injury caused Abdullah to miss the Gators' next four matches.

20, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 UF VOLLEYBALL Gators intend to say goodbye to seniors with ceremony By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer When the UF volleyball team takes the court Sunday for its last home match of the regular season, the Gators might have a hard time keeping it together. That's because UF will hold a post-match ceremony to say goodbye' o seniors Marcie Hampton, KisyaKillingsworthAmberMcCray and Angie McGinnis, whose names litter the school's record book. "Any one of those four could be the poster child for our program, and you would stand here and be so proud of it," Coach Mary Wise said. They'll wrap up their home regular-season careers when the No. 7 Gators (24-1, 17-1 Southeastern Conference) play tonight at 7 against Alabama (15-12, 12-6 SEC) and then Sunday against Mississippi State (12-15, 7-11) at 1:30 p.m. "It's crazy, because I remember my freshman year watching the four seniors go, and it was like, 'Wow, that day is so far away for me,'" fifth-year senior Amber McCray said. "It's amazing just how quickly time passed, and that day is here." Now that she'll be playing in her last matches, she has mixed emotions. "It's a joyous day, but it's sad, too, because you love playing in the O'Dome, and I'm definitely going to miss it," McCray said. "Any one of those four could be the poster child for our program, and you would stand here and be so proud of it." Mary Wise UF volleyball coach During her career, she has won five SEC championships and was a member of the team that played in the 2003 national semifinals, but what she'll remember most isher teammates. "I got a chance to play with three other amazing players, amazing women, and just being able to reflect on our careers that we've had here, I think is a huge deal for us and everyone else," McCray said. "You can't explain it. It's a bond like no other and I'm happy to be a part of it." Hampton has been described as the face of UF volleyball, starting strong by making SEC All-Freshman team in 2004 and working her way into the record books in four years. Killingsworth has been a force irr her four years here, as well, and made the All-SEC first team in 2005. McGinnis earned a starting role in her first season, acquired the most assists in UF history by a setter and took home SEC Player of the Year honors last season. Put all that together, and you have one of the best senior classes in Gators history. Libero Elyse Cusack, a sophomore, knows she'll cry when the seniors are saying their goodbyes to the O'Connell Center crowd. "This senior class has been amazing," Cusack said. "They're all great people, they're great teammates, and I'm going to miss each of them." Recruits sign letters of intent By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer True, one of the greatest senior classes in UF volleyball history is leaving school after this season. But the volleyball program announced it is reloading Wednesday, as an outstanding class of recruits signed national letters of intent for next season. "This group has the same opportunity to leave their mark all over our program before they're done," UF coach Mary Wise said. "We're excited about getting them all." The class includes PrepVolleyball.com's overall No. 1-ranked player, setter and outside hitter Kelly Murphy, who comes from Joliet Catholic Academy in Joliet, M. Wise said Murphy will likely see action both as a setter and a hitter. Her list of achievements is well worth drooling over for Gators fans: Her high school won regional crowns all four years, she helped the USA Junior National Team to a fourth-place finish at the 2007 FIVB Junior National World Championships and she helped her team win national titles in the 2007 and 2006 Junior Olympics. Middle blocker Cassie Anderson signed from Bakersfield High in California. Wise sees Anderson being one of the quickest middle blockers in UF history and someone the setters will look forward to assisting. Volleyball "Cassie will remind people of perhaps Kelsey Bowers in being very elite off one foot," Wise said. Anderson will be joined in the middle with 6-foot-2 Betsy Smith from Wesleyan School in Atlanta, who won state titles in all four years of high school. Smith also played on the Junior National A2 squad with UF freshman Kristy Jaeckel, who is redshirting this season, so there should be some chemistry present when they start to play "They got to be good buddies, and Kristy, because she was redshirted, goes right into that class, and that is another added bonus of that class," Wise said. Rounding out the class is pure setter Cindy Bathelt, who comes to Gainesville from Pine Creek High School in Colorado Springs, Colo. .Bathelt will likely split time setting with current UF sophomore All Cecchini. In a phone interview, Bathelt said she was heavily recruited by Louisiana State and Washington State, but chose UF knowing she would get to play with athletes who could kill the ball. "I expect to get a lot sharper, and just to grow and become a more seasoned player," she said. She had not spoken with any of the other recruits as of Thursday night, but said she will when all four have their official visit to Gainesville today "From all the hype I've been hearing .I'm really excited about it." Last season's 13-game losing skid began with Huskers WOMENfrompage 18 lenge. In the team's 82-71 win against Xavier, the Gators gave up 21 points to star forward Amber Harris but held freshman Ta'Shia Phillips to just 6. "It's definitely something that we hope we can draw some confidence from," Butler said. But the Cornhuskers will push the ball, as well, and like the up-tempo style of play. Last year's loss to the Cornhuskers, the teams' first-ever meeting, began the downward spiral for UF, which ended in a school-record 13-game losing streak. The team hopes things will be different this season, and two solid home wins show the Gators are certainly capable of producing a positive result. Now it's up to UF to execute on an opponent's floor. "Keep the Gator mentality," junior guard Kim Critton said. "We Critton gotta bring all our thoughts and things we learned on the road with to see if we can bring back a W." Forward regains confidence after recovering from injury SOCCER, from page 18 lineup, Abdullah never appeared to regain the explosiveness that made her so dangerous. Abdullah didn't score her first goal of the season until Oct. 21 in a match against Alabama. Following Sunday's outburst, Abdullah feels she's fully recovered from her injury. "It's a real confidence booster," Abdullah said. "I've obviously been pretty average this year and having that type of game kind of sends me back to the level I'm used to playing at. I definitely like how I'm playing now." After missing four games and multiple practices, Abdullah had to readjust to the game's speed. She readily admits her reactions were slower than inprior seasons. "My reaction to a lot of things was slower," Abdullah said. "My preparation for when a ball got sent to me was a little behind. And how comfortable I was with my body and my ankle wasn't the strongest, so I was cautious when I got the ball." Abdullah's return to form could be a deciding factor for a team hungry to stay alive this weekend. UF is currently on a 12-game winning streak, despite getting little production from Abdullah offensively. Adding her to the mix may put the team over the top, and UF coach Becky Burleigh appears excited by that. "She's been playing well for us," Burleigh said. "She hasn't been scoring as much, but she's been doing other things. For her to get on the board offensively makes us that more dangerous of a team. And if you look at who scored for us on Sunday, it's the big three in terms of our offense, Ameera, Stacy (Bishop) and KeLeigh (Hudson). I think that's a pretty intimidating group for us." UF junior forward Ameera Abdullah battles for the ball against Kentucky defender Julie Hull during the first half of the Oct. 7 match.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 M ALLIGATaR, 21 UF FOOTBALL Early recruiting-class has makings of nation's best By ROBERT CALLOVI Alligator Writer At this time last year, the UF football team's recruiting class had 14 oral conunitments and arguably the best class in the nation. Unfortunately for the Gators, they haven't been able to generate that same kind of early success this season. But even with fewer players, the 2008 recruiting class could turn out to be one of the best in the country by National Signing Day on Feb. 6. "It will be a good class," said Scout.com recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg. "Overall, it is going to be another great group." UF has already added talent and depth where it needs it most -its struggling defensive back corps. The Gators landed commitments from two safeties -Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep star Will Hill and Auburn (Ala.) High's Dee Finley, who are ranked as the nation's top two, respectively, at the position by Scout.com. UF also added a pair of in-state cornerbacks -Pahokee High's Janoris Jenkins and Orlando Boone High's Jeremy Brown. Jenkins and Brown are rated the Nos. 9 and 16 corners in the country, respectively. "Defensive back has to be one of the class's biggest strengths," Newberg said. "That is their biggest need, especially at cornerback." Almost all of the Gators' commits have been on the defensive side of the ball. Besides the defensive backs, UF has gotten oral commits from three defensive linemen -Chaz Sutton, Troy Epps and Earl Okine -and from five-star linebacker Brendan Beal. St. Augustine High's Caleb Sturgis, the nation's third-rated kicker, also committed. With an already-loaded arsenal of offensive weapons, the Gators aren't in need of a lot of recruits on offense. And with a limited am( ships available, UF is unlike players on that side of the b "The Gators will fill their they just don't have the nur ships they have had in the said. "The Gators will fill t because they just do number of scholarshi had in the pa Scout.com r The only offensive play the Gators so far is Savann High running back Frankl No. 29 at the position. Most of the nation's to already committed to a scho still a few players shopping unt of scholarAmong those still considering 14F are ly to sign many quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back all. Darrell Scott, linebacker Arthur Brown and needs, because cornerback Patrick Johnson, all of whom are nber of scholarthe top players at their positions. past," Newberg One of the nation's top offensive tackles, Matt Patchan, is also considering the Gators, and he will have to make his deciheir needs, sion shortly. n't have the Patchan will graduate this fal from have Seffner Armwood High and enroll at his They hav school of choice for the spring semester. St." 7Patchan is deciding between UF, LSU and Jamie Newberg Miami, where his father -also named Matt recruiting analyst -played in the late 1980s. Facing top competition is a major concern for Patchan. er to commit to "The biggest thing is talent on both sides ah (Ga.) Jenkins of the ball to help me develop in practice," in Green, rated said Patchan, who said he will announce his decision some time after Dec. 15. "I want the p recruits have talent already there, wherever I go. I want ol, but there are to be playing against first-rounders every their services. day." Young Saints look to avenge worst loss in two years N SANTA FE WILL START FOUR FRESHMEN. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer Santa Fe will try to avenge a 75-58 loss at the hands of Indian River Community College when the Saints take the floor Saturday "I think we'll play much better than we did 10 days ago," SFCC coach Chris Mowry said. SFCC (2-2), which starts four freshmen, will have its hands full at home with an experienced IRCC squad (4-0) that will have five sophomores on the floor for a 4 p.m. start. Leading IRCC will be sophomore point guard Marvin Gray, who was averaging 14.3 points along with 10.7 assists per game. "He's really fast, really quick and very hard to guard one on one," Mowry said. "We have to move our feet, help out and recover when we're beat." Mowry pointed to three areas of concern for the Saints on Saturday: defensive transition, containing the basketball and taking care of the ball on offense. "I don't know that we're trying to do anything different, just better," Mowry said. Santa Fe Community College When the teams played in Fort Pierce, IRCC got off to a fast start by hitting three of their first four field goals. "They kind of punched us in the nose, and we didn't respond well," Mowry said. Now SFCC will try to respond after a 17-point loss at the hands of IRCC, their largest margin of defeat in more than two years. SFCC consistently ranks among the top teams in the state in threepoint attempts, a trend that was on display Monday against the Tampa Swish when the Saints hoisted 26 threes on their way to 35 percent shooting from beyond the arc. The key for the Saints might be how well they are able to convert on their three-point opportunities. Mowry plans to stick with his usual 10-man rotation and expects more big-time contributions from a bench that scored 51 points in the last game. "Our leading scorer came off the bench last season," Mowry said. "If we didn't think they could help us win, they wouldn't play." Mowry is going to need all 10 of his players, eight of them freshmen, to show experience beyond their years if the Saints are going to hand undefeated Indian River its first loss of the season. "Imagine if Florida was out there playing a [Southeastern Conference] school with five returning starters," Mowry said. "That's the challenge we're up against. f % V 0 a "Copyrighted,,matsr"al 3 Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" J&4 i1.>~

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 29 Gators consider effects of injuries By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccal@alligator.org Maurkice Pouncey may understand more than anyone how much one injury can impact a football team. The right guard was injected into the offensive line when senior Phil Trautwein suffered a season-ending stress fracture during preseason workouts. Pouncey himself suffered a highankle sprain against South Carolina, but he is expected to see considerable playing time against Florida Atlantic this Saturday. Dealing with injuries is as much a part of a college football player's life as the playbook, and players spend countless hours devoted to getting healthy for an upcoming game. When the aches and pains pile up again, the players just repeat the cycle. It's a rough routine, but the longterm effects of the process can be truly horrific. A football career can leave a player's body in ruins and result in brain damage, crippling or even death. Looking that far down the road can be difficult in college, especially for members of the UF football team, who are locked in a heated battle for the Southeastern Conference crown. "It's a tremendous concern," UF wide receiver Percy Harvin said. "Just playing sports, you have to treat yourself like a professional athlete." Harvin, a sophomore, has sustained several injuries since arriving in Gainesville,-including tendinitis in his heel that slowed him for several weeks. "I had bad tendonitis earlier this year that came from last season," he said. "I just kept blowing it off and it came back to haunt me this year." It took a talk with some team trainers to make Harvin realize the potential consequences of his injury, he said. "My trainer told me that something like that happened to (NFL defensive end) Simeon Rice, that he kept putting it off to the side and it came back Football to get him," Harvin said. "The trainers always told me that even if I have a little nick and I think it's nothing, to get it treated anyway" The team's trainers and doctors must do more than just treat injuries. Dr. Peter Indelicato, head physician for the UF Athletic Association, said it is always tough to tell an athlete he is unable to play because of health reasons. "Often there is a player who wants to play, but you feel that it isn't in their best interests to play," Indelicato said. "Sometimes they find that difficult to accept initially, but that's where you pull them in the office and explain the risk-toPercy Harvin runs during the Gators' 42-30 loss against Georgia in Jacksonville on Oct. 27. In his first two years, Harvin has suffered several injuries that have forced him to miss practices and games. benefit ratio to them. "After they understand it better, the vast majority of them are thankful that there is somebody looking after their interests." While the players may get caught up in the emotions of their season, Indelicato and his staff must treat them like any other patient. "I think that we as doctors and athletic trainers, that's our job, to inform them of the potential consequences of continuing their activities," he said. "It's no different than any other patient that we have." The consequences for some past players have been dire. Many NFL players sustain head, back or joint injuries that leave them impaired for life. ESPN analyst Jesse Palmer, a former Gators quarterback, can attest to the effects of a playing career on a body. Palmer, 29, said he gets pains in his knees and back occasionally, despite never injuring either seriously. "It's easy to forget, especially in this sport," he said. "You just take your body for granted. It's important that you take care of yourself, do preventative things and listen to the training staff." After a brief career in the NFL, Palmer knows -the potential harm that can be done to a body. "Everyone feels indestructible, especially at this age in college," Palmer said. "You just feel like you won't get hurt or that you are young and can recover. At the end of the day, it can come back sometimes."

They might chase each other down and meet in a New Year's Dav bowl game, either the Capital One Bowl or the Outback Bowl. A potential matchup of Zook against the school that fired him could be the most talkedabout non-BCS game of the postseason, giving incentive to bowl organizers to make it happen. "It's certainly intriguing and adds something to it," said Steve Hogan, the executive director of Florida Citrus Sports, which runs the Capital One Bowl. "We are always interested in who is the highest-ranked team, got the best resume and is going to give us the best game on the field. That's No. 1 for us. "After that, if there's an interesting story like that, it just makes it that much better." Before the season, you could have likened Illinois' chances of sniffing a January bowl game to Tim Tebow's odds of winning the Heisman Trophy. But here we are. UF and Illinois have the same amount of losses, three, and are separated by seven places in the latest BCS rankings. The Capital One Bowl pits the No. 2 Big Ten team against the No. 2 Southeastern Conference team, unless the BCS nabs atlarge teams from the conferences. I The Outback Bowl gets the third pick from each league and generally chooses an SEC East team. Both bowls have leeway in their picks and can take any team within one game in the overall standings of the best available school. ball success at basketball-driven Illinois since taking over in 2005. The Illini will play in a bowl game for the first time since the 2001 season, and with strong recruiting, they likely aren't going to fold any time soon. Just last week, Zook joined Meyer as the only coaches to beat Ohio State in the last two years. Everyone has taken notice, even the bowl fortune-tellers. ESPN.com and CBSSports.com have Zook penciled in to face his former team in Orlando. A trip back to the Sunshine State for "That would hurt Gator Nation a Zook would aid recruiting and allow him lot, Zook coming here and beating us." to see guys he recruited play their final college game. However, the Gators would have iust Andre Caldwell as much to lose as Zook has to gain. UF wide reciever UF athletics director Jeremy Foley, who fired Zook before the end of the 2004 Barring multiple upsets, a handful of Big Ten and SEC teams will be available to both bowl games. But no other matchups carry the same appeal as UF-Illinois. "Would that create addition conversation? Sure it would," said Jim McVay, president and CEO of the Outback Bowl. "We wouldn't try to match the teams unless they would be deserving. These are deserving, good teams." Like Meyer did at Bowling Green and Utah, Zook has laid a foundation for footseason, will not comment on possible bowl matchups. He will not talk about the humbling possibility of losing to Zook. But the players will. "That would hurt Gator Nation a lot, Zook coming here and beating us," said wide receiver Andre Caldwell, one of the few current Gators who played for Zook in 2003 and 2004. "He's a great coach, and he's made them a great team. But we still think we have the advantage with better players and better athletes."

30, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 Caldwell looks for record with Harvin sitting out FOOTBALL, from page 31 Meyer said. "We're playing a really good team that is competing for a conference championship. I think our guys are just game to game trying to get better, and they're facing a good team." Since the Georgia and Tennessee games will be underway during the Gators' game, there will be some considerable scoreboard-watching from the UF sideline. "I'll probably be peeking up there to look and see what's going on," Caldwell said. "But I've got to focus on what I have to do." PICKS, from page 31 Caldwell is expected to make up for the absence of star wideout Percy Harvin for the second straight game. Harvin did not practice this week, and spent several days receiving IV treatments in an infirmary. Without Harvin in the lineup, the Gators will have to diverge from the usual plan on offense. "It'll probably be a Harvin lot of what you saw at South Carolina -getting the ball to me a lot more and using some of our ginning," Fake Howard said. "It wasn't the juggernaut that it is now." Fake Howard gave the show the spark it needed. Earlier this year, Tim Hardaway went on the show and announced to the world his hatred for gay people. But, in the end, the bread and butter of the show is Fake Howard, who has actually spoken with the real Howard in a couple of segments. "If I were to talk to him again, I guess it would really be to tell him to win a few games," said Fake Howard, who did the entire phone interview in character. "I'm concerned that this could be his final stop. If he doesn't start winning soon, he's going to be out of the coaching ranks, which means I'm out of a job doing my Fake Howard." Fake Howard discussed everything from the greatness of Urban Meyer to keeping Tim Tebow in check. "Beverlee hasn't seen me much in the bed," Fake Howard said. "I've been staying up late trying to figure out a way to stop this guy." Fake Howard picked the Owls to beat the Gators 2-0, and his pre-game speech could spark his predicted upset. "I'm going to tell them when you come out on that field and see all those players, you just hoot, and that's the key to winning--i4st hoot," Fake Howard said. "They won't know what hit them. They'll think that you're trying to play football. But instead, I just want you to hoot. That's the advice I'd give them. I'm all about the hoot." If only the Gators gave a hoot-about FAU. 6 lk 'M 4 flisc~unt v,~tdrti N) Sprint > Authorized Service& Repai Ashhn 4006 W 22 Drive Gainesville, FL. 32605 (352) 777-8727 e Ifr V, -6pm m.S a m li &heaura by thes 1 P'nl rr-iti SELF DEFENSE REAL WORLD!

Caldwell has set career highs in catches in each of the last two games, with nine against Vanderbilt and 11 against the Gamecocks. If he duplicates that success Saturday, he can break Carlos Alvarez's all-time receptions mark at UF with nine catches. Having Harvin out could help Caldwell break the record, but it's a trade he isn't happy to make. "I'm never excited when [Harvin] isn't in there," Caldwell said. "He takes a lot of stress and a lot of pressure off of me." Onto the picks! Leading off with a record of 58-42, which is worse than the guest pickers combined, is alligatorSports.org Editor Brian "Schnellenberger's their star safety, right?" Steele, whose butt has turned rosy red from all those Telly Concepcion post-practice slaps that leave him smiling with glee. In second at 57-43 is Sports Editor Bryan "I hate this job" Jones, who is contemplating sleeping in and skipping Saturday's game after his exhaustive week of work. Next up with a record of 54-46 is Assistant Sports Editor Jenna "I hate this job, too" Marina, who doesn't understand how the Navy Midshipmen can play in those sailor uniforms. Falling in fourth at 53-47 is Mike "I want to be a male model" McCall, whose no-shave November plan fell through when an overzealous stylist encroached on his peach fuzz. And rounding out this sorry group in dead-ass last place with a piss-poor record of 49-51, that's right, under .500, is Nick "Microsoft Office 2007 can go to hell and die" Zaccardi, who is using that as the cover for the real reason he hates his new laptop -it doesn't have the massive cache of shirtless Ron Zook photos that lived on his old computer.

They've all had spurts. It just hasn't happened for a complete game yet. Even though it is against a Sun Belt Conference team, a dominating performance would give this young defense the confidence it needs heading into bowl season, not to mention next season. Players have continually said youth is no longer an excuse this late in the season. The Gators will still win handily no matter how the defense plays -Tebow alone will make sure of that -but the Owls don't have that bad of an offense. It's at least up there with Troy, which scored 24 points on UF in the second half. While Tebow and the offense will be able to rest in the second half, this defense still needs to play with a fire. The Gators have something to prove, and it takes more than one half .to do that. The smallest amount of points they've allowed has been 3, and that was in the season opener against Western Kentucky. Sorry, doesn't count. But this will, even if you don't stay for the entire game. The players won't know it initially, but walking off your home field knowing that you are capable of dominating someone gives you a sense of confidence that wasn't there before. Spikes has talked about "Florida Defense" and the pride that comes with that. It's something that helped lead UF to the championship last year, and if the Gators are able to find it this year, you can bet it'll help them win the championship next year. "T

Instead, the games with the biggest impact on UF's season will take place in Athens, Ga., and Knoxville, Tenn., where the two teams ahead of the Gators (7-3, 5-3 Southeastern Conference) in the race for the SEC East will play.

UF needs both the Bulldogs and Volunteers to lose a conference game, and if Georgia is successful this weekend, the Gators' dreams of returning to the SEC Championship Game will be crushed. The magnitude of these games is almost enough to overshadow UF's game against FAU. "There are some big games going on for us with Georgia and Tennessee," receiver Andre Caldwell said. "We need them to lose, but every game we go into, we're playing to win and blow a team out. You may not think it's a big game, but it is to us." "I always look at the talent level. And this team has excellent talent on defense. I compare them a lot to Troy." Urban Meyer UF coach The Owls (5-4, 4-1 Sun Belt) are locked in a battle for the Sun Belt title with Troy, whom UF defeated 59-31 in its second game of the season. The Gators are heavily favored in the game, but they aren't overlooking FAU. The Owls are comparable to the Trojans, who outscored UF 24-10 in the second half. "I always look at the talent levelUF coach Urban Meyer said. "And this team has excellent talent on defense. I compare them a lot to Troy." Meyer isn't worried that his team will take FAU lightly.

Scoring is not the issue for this team. The Gators can dominate at will on offense, and they showed that last week.

32, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007 NCAA FOOTBALL Florida Atlantic coach motivates Owls with reputation By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org Every time Florida Atlantic quarterback Rusty Smith has a chat with Coach Howard Schnellenberger, he sees them. "On one hand there's the national championship ring, on the other, the Super Bowl ring," Smith said. "He always has them on." Schnellenberger hasn't won a national championship during his seven years at FAU, but if you peer back into the early '80s -before any statewide team was regularly contending for national titles -you'll see Schnellenberger as the architect of the Miami football program. He took over a Hurricanes program in 1979 that was in shambles. It was on the verge of being shut down by administration. Then, just four years later, Miami won the national championship. After deciding to leave Miami, Schnellenberger went to Louisville, and nearly did the same thing. The Cardinals never won the national championship, but Schnellenberger did lead them to the program's first national ranking and a 34-7 upset of Alabama in the 1991 Fiesta Bowl. "He's rebuilt the University of Miami," said Smith, who has 20 touchdowns to seven interceptions on the season. "He's rebuilt the University of Louisville. Then FAU came to him, and he said, 'How awesome would it be to do something nobody's ever done before?"' So far, so good. FAU's football program started in 2001, but the Owls are 5-4 and 4-1 in the Sun Belt Conference and are on course to play Troy -which UF throttled 59-31 earlier this season -for the conference title. Schnellenberger "I've gotten to develop a football team -the greatest coaches in America haven't always had this opportunity. To get to do that in my senior years was a great motivating factor," the 73-year-old Schnellenberger said. "There are only a handful of coaches that have ever had the opportunity to do something like this: Steve Spurrier, Bobby Bowden, Bear Bryant, Woody Hayes. All these guys developed programs that came in on the ground floor." With more than 45. years in the coaching field, his experience has become invaluable to his players. "Every time I see the rings, I can't believe I'm playing for a legend," Smith said. "You're playing for a guy that's experienced everything there is to be experienced. You know everything that he has in the playbook is going to work." When Smith was first recruited, Schnellenberger took him into a room and showed him pictures of the quarterbacks he has coached. Smith recalled seeing clips of Jim Kelly and Bernie Kosar. Schnellenberger contributed to the Miami Dolphins' undefeated team in 1972 as the offensive coordinator. He then coached the Baltimore Colts from 1973-74. As if he doesn't already boast an impressive track record, he was also the offensive coordinator at Alabama under Bear Bryant and was part of three title teams. That's where the rings come in. After all these years, it's safe to say Schnellenberger's earned them. "Some people may think I'm pretentious to do that," he said. "But it's been a major asset for me to recognize that I've been associated with those kind of things, especially when you're developing a tradition. "It's important that I wear the rings." WR to miss second game N PERCY HARVIN IS STILL RECEIVING IV TREATMENTS. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@alligator.org UF wide receiver Percy Harvin will not play against Florida Atlantic on Saturday. He continued to undergo IV treatments as he battles persistent migraines. Coach Urban Meyer said the sophomore was in the infirmary all day Thursday, which makes his stay about four days running. Meyer said his parents came to Gairn*ville three days ago to be with their son. "le's feeling a little bit better," Meyer said. "We're all hoping. .I imagine sometime we'll have a release, I guess." Harvin was originally diagnosed with a sinus infection and migraines more than a week ago. This is not the first time one of Meyer's players has been incapacitated with migrames. During Meyer's tenure at Utah, the team's captain, Morgan Scalley, also suffered from headaches. "I've seen them shut [a player] down for four days before," Meyer said. "It's awful." POUNCEY TO PLAY: Even though Harvin is out, the Gators did receive the good news that right guard Maurkice Pouncey will be able to play Saturday. Pouncey suffered a high-ankle sprain during the first quarter of the South Carolina game last week and was questionable until Thursday. "I've seen [migraines] shut [a player] down for four days before. It's awful." Urban Meyer UF football coach "He had a great day today," Meyer said. "He heals well and he works at it. He spent all day in the training room. He did a really good job." Meyer wasn't sure if Pouncey would return to his starting role. Pouncey will likely split time with redshirt freshman Marcus Gilbert. "He's a guy that's stepped in, doing a very nice job," Meyer said of Gilbert. % A, *t %4 .1, % wh '42% 9 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" A R 9G RZLtLL 1 FRI: Beat the Clock Live DJ SAT: Free Beer & Live DJ Professional Ghostwriter E.S.

Haden said adjusting to the speed has been the hardest part. Though he played some safety in high school, he wasn't prepared at first to deal with the talented receivers on the college level. "In'highschool, if I guard somebody in practice, I was fasterthan them and stronger, so I could just bully them around," Haden said. "But here,everybody is the samespeed.

In the early hours of Oct. 12, friend and scout team quarterback Michael Guilford decided to give Slonina a ride home from a party on his motorcycle. Guilford struck a median at high speed on Old Archer Road and SW 23rd Terrace. The two died instantly. Haden leaedofitheaccidentfrom a teammate, and he frantically searched to find out iflSlonina was all right. "I was like, 'Oh my God, what hospital is she at?"' Haden said. "I was calling around, calling every hospital around here. And nobody knew. They werelike, 'Them's no Ashleys at anyeof these hospitals."' At amund 3 a.m., Meyer called Hadenand broke the news. Devastated, all Haden could do was weep. He decided to head back home to Maryland to take his mind off of the tragedy "As a young man, this was Joe's first personal tragedy," his father said. "Ijustthank God it was a bye weekend he was able to be around the family. Thingslikethat -you don't geteover it. You learn to live with it." Haden's family didn't realize just how close he and Slonina were until he returned home. But with the support of his loved ones, Hadenrecovered. Haden's mother, Zakiya, returned to Gainesville with him and spent about a weekbyhis side. He had something else to helpbhimkeep his mindoff of Slonina's death: football. Haden played the next week against Kentucky and was satisfied with his performance. In fact, in the weeks since the accident, Haden has played someof his best games for the Gators. "It's therapeutic for him," Haden's father said. "He said the hard part was when he goes back to his dorm at night -the quiet moments." But since then, Haden said he is no longer hauntedby that tragic night. He said he knows Slonina is in a better place. He now uses his fond and loving memories of her as inspiration. "If anything, it made me work harder," Haden said. "We never try to settle anymore. We just try to do our best at whatever we do. .Tell everyone you love that you love them. Don't try to have any grudges. Just try to live life good, because that's the way Ashley did it."
